'Graphic Truancy' (or the value of doodling).
At work the other day, I was cataloguing some new books, and came across this book by David Maclagan. I thought it looked interesting, flicked through it and found this paragraph, which really appealed to me:
I spend a lot of meetings doodling, and agree with what Maclagan says about it actually helping me concentrate more, but I think my doodling reached it’s apex during the first term of my MA at Library School. Both modules that term were pretty tedious, and I’d spend most of them merrily scribbling away. Maybe for a lot of the reasons listed in the paragraph above? Anyway, I’ve uploaded some of the pages here, as a record of that time.
