My Doodle

Here is my doodle for Nine Acres: 20 Miles North of Nowhere. I will look at how to figure it out when I get back from school. I'm rushing out the door now. Bye for now. *Edit*

Okay, I'm back with my analysis.


Analyzing my doodle.......... I want to be important in people's lives, because I've got a large picture in the middle there. I started my doodle on the left, but that may have been influenced by the red nine (this was part of the instructions, start with a red "9"). I filled in most of the right side first (the face, then went to the flower pot, the hearts, etc) which signifies that I use logic. I have a combination of light and dark strokes, probably more of the light, the dark was to show hair, lashes, coloring. Dark can show depression and while I'm not at the top of my game right now, I am in no way depressed.

Now some of the symbolism:

Eyes - this can show a need to be alluring or that I'm feeling like I'm being watched. I have a total of 4 eyeballs in this doodle.

Flowers - Usually drawn by women and are romantic in nature. They show a desire to blossom and be fruitful in life. This absolutely fits me. I just opened that shop and sold my first photo. I'm looking for an additional writing job. I doodle flowers often, now that I think of it.

Lips - These are usually drawn by women and show some sort of sexual frustration. I drew lips on both fish, but none on the man in the middle. I'm currently pissed at my boyfriend, so yep, that fits, too.

Oceans - These doodles are typical of people who spend a lot of time indulging in their imaginations, but who rarely put their dreams into practice. Well, I did not draw the ocean, but I did draw under the ocean. I am currently really trying to take my goals beyond dreams (where they've been hiding for a long time) and into practice. Baby steps, as long as I keep moving forward.............

Portraits - Drawn by young girls to show an idealized self-portrait. Comic faces are drawn by men and show a desire to be the center of attention. So apparently I'm feeling like a man who wants some attention??

Stars - Repeated stars are drawn by irrepressible romantics. I like stars.

It doesn't mention hearts or fish. I draw a lot of both when doodling.

I think that's me pretty accurately. Interesting. If you try it, leave me a comment and let me know where yours is and what you find out.

Love the fish! The analysis should be interesting. I don't think they had much about fish! Thanks for participating!

Ooooo I wish I'd done FISH in my doodle! I can't believe I didn't doodle any fish! I like your face too - that is a GREAT cartoon face!

My book says drawing hearts means you're loving, warmhearted, affectionate, and kind. E-mail me if you want to know what fish doodles mean...

Thanks, ladies. I do the fish when I'm drawing with the kid's sidewalk chalk, too. This was fun and it reminded me how much I enjoy doodling. :D

I love how you incorporated the 9 into the face.....awesome eyebrows! And fish! (I am horrible at drawing fish)

The 9 in the face was a great doodle idea--and fish! I love to draw fish! (I'm now surprised I didn't doodle a fish. I do wonder what the doodling of fish means...)

Fun analysis too!

love the doodle! i doodle flowers, suns and smily faces all day every day. hmmm...what do you suppose that's saying about me? :)

Askew To You said...

Leah, I think it means that you are a sunny, funny, female who likes romance or something like that. :D

I do the suns, too, sometimes.

Leah said...
