Many people want to lead more creative lives but find it difficult to make creativity a daily exercise. In Year of the Doodle, Dawn DeVries Sokol solves the problem with a year’s worth of interactive prompts—starter doodles, quotes, questions, and fun exercises, all on Sokol’s well-loved painted backgrounds, interspersed with collaged bits of ledger, graph, and notebook paper—meant to get would-be doodlers interacting with their sketchbooks daily. Opening with ideas for jump-starting the doodle habit, Year of the Doodle is not linked to a particular year like a calendar—instead, a year’s worth of entries are numbered sequentially so doodlers can start and finish whenever they want to jump-start their creativity.
