My Daughter’s Doodle Art

I think most of us doodle during our idle times or maybe even during out not so idle moments. Anyone can doodle and does!

But you’ve got to admit, very few people can turn their doodles into art.

My daughter had a chance to review these Bic markers not so long ago and this is what she came up with.
