My name is Shaun Cuff. I am a Graphic Designer and Caulkhead – born, bred and constantly doodling on the Isle of Wight.
All of my doodles are produced using a single continuous line. Why I hear you cry! Well it’s a nice technique, it forces me to think about the detail and the image as a whole at the same time. It also frees up the illustration – not being too precious about wandering off course. I do occasionally take my pen off the paper* but it always returns to the spot it left to continue its journey.
I use a fine line marker pen and a simple card aperture to act as a guide and frame whilst producing the doodles. This has a number of measurements on it showing thirds, quarters, fifths, etc to help give the doodles some structure – I am a designer after all!
Doodling is a sideline (no pun intended)
As a Graphic Designer I am fortunate to be doing a job I love. My day job is all about logo design, branding, brochures, print and very much about fulfilling a clients brief. Doodling is for fun and an enjoyable way to pass ten minutes along the way.
If there is a particular scene or scenario you would like doodled and I feel I can do it justice then I am happy to take on commission work. Please use the form below to send me a message. Alternatively you can tweet me!
