Artwork: Zebra Zensation Brush Pen and Mildliners on a Hahnemühle YouTangle tile
It’s been a while since I just did a random doodle, so I colored up a tile with some mildliner pens and drew away with a flexible brush pen. Some cheese molds get pretty colorful, so I think this could pass.
Did you know that Penicillium roqueforti, the mold used to create blue-veined cheeses, is an anti-inflammatory believed to help with cardiovascular health, joint pain, and the skin?
And today’s doodle…
Doodlewash Prompt: Buttons

I realized I didn’t have anything but my daily doodles for today and tomorrow, so I did some quick abstracts to post.
Ever wonder why buttons are on opposite sides for men and women? Most men dressed themselves, and most being right-handed, it was easier to have buttons on the right. Most women of wealth were dressed by someone else, and left-sided button were easier to see. As usual in this world, poor people seldom had buttons so no one cared how they dressed.
I’ve had to do a lot of waiting the last couple of weeks, for various reasons. Zebra Pens US sent me a boatload of new pens – Sarasa clip pens and Mildliners. I grabbed some of the mildliners (check out the weekly giveaway!) and stuffed them in my purse (which weighs a ton! ouch!) along with some Hahnemühle YouTangle tiles.
And instead of just waiting, I doodle waited!
Mostly I was trying out the pens and checking out the new colors, but I also kept the Doodlewash prompts for the month in mind. Abstract. It’s a wonderful word that means ‘this almost looks like something’, lol.
Doodlewash prompt: Tomatoes. I started trees before I thought of tomatoes and hadn’t pulled out any reds. Ah well, tamrillos are kind of purplish and they’re called tree tomatoes.
Doodlewash prompt: Sand. At first, I just thought about doing dots in all the different colors, but I didn’t think I’d have time. Then I had the idea of confetti blowing around in a sandstorm and combined the two.
Doodlewash prompt: Under Water. So this one has under water and over water. Close enough.
Doodlewash prompt: Wildflowers. Okay, this one is really a stretch, lol. It looks more like a piñata , but a piñata made of wild flowers. Right? Right?
