Doodle is a type of handwriting in which an artist draws random phrases or letters in a foreign typeface. Usually found at the margins of high school student’s schoolbooks, these doodled drawings are often drawn when out of daydreaming on life upon graduating from high school. In the absence of a graphologist, it is often difficult to judge when a student is really dabbling in doodle. As with other types of art, most artists rely on their personal style instead of following an accepted style of drawing.

It is important to remember that if you are going to use different types of tools, you must ensure that the tools you are using are appropriate for the typeface you have selected for your doodle.
