OKAT is the founder and editor of Doodlers Anonymous and Doodle Addicts. An avid thinker, creator and collaborator, known to concept and carry a ballpoint pen with him at all times.
I specialize in lettering, patterns, pen and ink, quirky doodles.
I wanted to cover up a crappy scribble that was on this page, so I just covered it in black and used a white ink pen to doodle over it

This sketchbook is my therapist. Not this one specifically, but any single one small enough to fit in my pocket. I tell it everything, from quirky thoughts and funny notes to abstract concepts, drawings and positive reminders. Keep it analog folks… a doodle, sketch, writing, poem, or scribble every day helps to keep the brain fit and the thoughts flowing. ✏️

I believe the future is about connection. Sometimes it seems that technology is making us more alone, but I like to believe that with every post, like, comment, follow, share, email and tweet, we are making ourselves more visible to one another. And together, we can make ourselves heard... Keep it positive, keep it loud, and keep it going forever.

Try it: Take a sharpie, give yourself five-minutes on the clock and see what doodle you come up with.
I didn't have my sketchbook on me.
There’s a carnival going on inside my head.
I dug up this rock while hiking the Negev desert in Israel last year. It’s sharp and kinda chalky and it feels like it has stories to tell when you look deep into its lines and layers.
Doodling is what I do. It's a way to make visible the randomness that's in my head - just drawing out a concept right when it comes to mind and scribbling on whatever I can find.

When you are gifting a present and run out of wrapping paper just grab some Kraft (or recycled) paper and draw all over it to create your own custom pattern.
Neil was the first author whose words I first fell in love with.
