It was a privilege to be invited by the BBC to analyse doodles for National Doodle Day. I collaborated with Adebanji Alade (who incidentally provided the fantastic drawing in the headline). We talked about the value of doodling and the meaning behind doodles. Adebanji is a prolific sketcher, a motivational speaker and Art Coach, and an TV Presenter on The One Show.
We spent a few hours filming a short video (you can hear the recording below), which was subsequently aired on BBC’s The One Show on 22/09/19 especially to mark National Doodle Day. I was also invited to make a ‘live’ appearance on The One Show with Frank Skinner, Angela Scanlon and guest comedian Rob Beckett (more on that later!).
A big thanks to the BBC Film Crew for an exciting and inspirational day of filming, and gratitude also to the University of West London for hosting such a wonderful day and providing us with some willing (and very brave) students who doodle during lectures! It was an amazing experience!
What do your doodles say about you?
