"Belgian artist Jook... turned her house into one giant doodle pad so there’d be no barriers for her drawing."

"Whenever she feels inspired she can just pick up a pen and go wild on the walls. The bathtub is covered with wipe-away doodles by Jook and her son, and every room has been transformed into Jook’s doodled world. Jook even doodles on her clothes, so every part of her life can be filled with her creativity. Take a look...."

To each his or her own. I'd prefer a house filled with poodles.

Hurting resale value.

I’m assuming the house is not leased.

Her distinctive drawing style triggered a memory of the late Keith Haring's works.

Frankly, I don't much care for her frenetic, repetitive drawing style. She may suffer from obsessive-compulsive disorder.

Just goes to show you what you can get away with when you are fuckable and lean into it with your dress.

Not sure I'd want to live there but I suspect that befoe I moved into any new house I'd repaint anyway.

One of my clients has a conference room with no whiteboard. Instead the entire room is painted with whiteboard paint. It's pretty cool.

I'm planning on painting a hallway in my house with it so the grandkids can go nuts drawing on the wall.

Is “Jook” the Flemish word for “Joke”?

At least these doodles are more fun than yesterdays symphony.

These look like Althouse doodles. Watch out, Meade.

When does a scribble become a doodle?

An artist who lacks limitation.

In googling Jook I found it was an Asian rice porridge.

I'm told that as an infant I would draw on the walls by my crib using my own shit. Story of my life.

You know who else drew on their walls?

That's right, upper paleolithic anatomically modern humans, and Hitler. Probably.

Doodle is another word for shit.

It’s not that it hurts resale value, rather it makes it un saleable.
Once an “artist” creates art. They own that art in perpetuity. The surface, or object that it’s attached to can never be repurposed.

There's always primer and paint when they get too annoyed by it.

I have a drawing pad and a pen next to me most times and I cannot simply watch TV or surf online or even chat with a close relative without doodling. This started years ago when I was in nursing school and doodled in the margins of my notes during lectures. Doodling actually seems to sharpen my attention and is relaxing at the same time. I wonder if the instructor assumed I was assiduously taking notes during the entire lecture. My doodling has become quite intricate and I draw mandalas, I also do something called zen doodling which can be very intricate, but also almost mindless, or simply start with whatever shape enters my brain and Build on that. It’s extreme relaxation with one part of your brain and yet another part is very alert. My family and friends have taken many of my “doodlings” and framed them, which makes me smile, but that’s not why I do them. It’s pure pleasure putting pen to paper, watching the ink and my hand create something that actually has very little thought or planning behind it, and people seem to think they’re beautiful, lol.

However doodling on my walls might be going to far, my doodles must stay in my many drawing pads.

I'll simply point to when Bobby Brown recounted how he had to "dig a 'Doodie Bubble'" out of Whitney Houston's butt with his fingers.

"That's love!"

Robert Cook said...

Cool! I like them!

Frank said...

Fun idea. it would be so much better if there was a bit of creativity and diversity in her drawing. It's all the same and I'm not sure what I'm looking at.
