Bringing Doodling to Everyone

Research and Design for Interlude   |  XD, Filming, Editing, FX


I have too much to say

I just posted this! I really wanted to share the pictures though. Real quick, I wanted to hone my Experience Design skills by creating a new experience! So I worked with my friend Maggie Peterson and DrinkNDoodle to create a better Drink and Draw experience – something that would make novice drawers begin to feel more comfortable with drawing!

The Drunken Bee Drawing Club.

I'll write more about this project's design process soon.

Below, you can see a list of drawing games we developed! Our next step is creating a website/toolkit thing for all of these games, a bunch more we made, as well as loads of tips on creating your own awesome drink and draw.

Why? Because no one should be scared of doodling!
