How to Doodle Frustration

Step 1

If someone asked you to doodle FRUSTRATION, what would you draw? How would you represent this word using a picture? How about a pencil snapping in half. To begin with, draw a rectangle shape slanted at a 45-degree angle. Notice the jagged line at the top of the rectangle shape.

Step 2

To draw the tip of your pencil, use a v-shape and then a straight line. Notice the size of the pencil tip when compared to the body of the pencil you drew in step 1. This is, however, only about half the body of our pencil. The second half is in step 3.

Draw the other end of your pencil using the same rectangle shape you drew in step 1. Also, include the jagged line on the right end of the rectangle. Notice the angle of this end of the pen compared to the other end of the pen.

Step 4

Use an arc shape and a straight line to doodle the rubber tip at the end of our pencil doodle.

Step 5

For the final step, we need to show that our pencil is getting snapped in half in frustration. We, of course, want to keep this simple by showing only the snapping action. To visualize this, use v-shapes extending from the space between the two pencil ends. Then in between the v-shapes, draw small dots and circles to show little pieces breaking off the pencil. And finally, don’t forget to give your FRUSTRATION doodle some needed color.
