This is an interesting news report on "doodling." I doodled quite a bit in high school in the margins of my papers and would sometimes turn in informal assignments with the doodling in the margins. Now, sometimes I doodle on a separate sheet of paper in meetings. I often doodle when on the phone as well. Doodling for me just happens while I am thinking about something else. When my doodling changes over to art, I start thinking about what I am drawing and organizing the page.
