Whenever I find myself talking to another creative or just a curious person about my process I usually talk about doodling. Ever since I was young I have had a knack for doodling on my binders and folders in class, and in retrospect I have come to understand that I was just curious about my own imagination. Doodling for me is similar to free-styling to an emcee or vocalist. It's just fun to riff and see what comes about. For some time I felt discouraged to carve the path of an "alternative cartoonist" (as I like to call it) due to what others ideas of art was. After studying the success of Tin Tin, The Smurfs, Charlie Brown, Garfield, and Dr.Seuss I knew there could be hope for myself. Theres a certain kind of freedom that comes with doodling. I like to think of it as proof of imagination. There's no expectation, no standard, no pressure, and usually success. The image above is one of many preliminary doodles that will be developed into my mobile game. After releasing a fairly successful children's book in December (with an e-book version soon to follow) I have now set my sights on the world of mobile gaming. For those of you that are still reading and have been checking the website periodically I thank you. It brings me joy to know my work has been bought and appreciated by both children and adults. The idea of having some control over my characters via a mobile game will hopefully create a more personal experience for participants as well as myself. Like my paintings, sketches, and children's book, this mobile game is being developed slowly but surely via doodling.
