Step 1

How to create a simple doodle that represents the idea of reading a book? Begin by drawing a vertical line in the middle of your page. Draw four additional lines extending from the vertical line at a 45-degree angle. Notice the length of angles of the lines. These lines will become the back of our book.


Step 2

To draw the pages of your book, use two straight lines and a couple of small squiggly lines. Notice again, the angle of the lines when compared to the lines you drew in step 1.


Step 3

Let’s now doodle the person reading the book. Begin by drawing the person’s hands. Notice the placement of the hands. Also, notice that our doodle person only has three fingers. And this is fine because when it comes to doodling, it’s all about simplification. Don’t forget to also doodle the head. Use a half oval shape for this purpose.
