Are there distinct differences between drawing, doodling and illustrating? I suppose if you go by the official definitions, drawing seems to be the over encompassing description of making a picture or diagram of something. Then you have doodling for when there is no apparent goal in mind versus illustrating when you are creating a picture for the purposes of publication. Something like that…

But what does it matter right? I was just wondering if what term we use, reflects how we define our work and worth. I happen to use the word doodle quite often because it seems less formal. But perhaps I’m putting my work on a lower shelf…but illustration sounds a bit stuff at times. These are the thoughts that pop up in my mind. Silly me. Pondering me.

I guess, I’m only sure of one thing. I like putting marker to paper and creating.
