"Doodling is a carefree, relaxing style of illustration that can add whimsy to your artwork. Repeating patterns can help convey a theme or jazz up an existing design, but they are also wonderful as standalone projects." -Stephanie Corfee
Your mission—should you choose to accept it—is to mix pattern and color!
