On a scale of 1-10, my artist skills are about a 2. I can copy simple simple illustrations, icons really, but that is it. I really have no creative artist skills. But, I don’t let that stop me. When I want some inspiration on how to doodle, how to draw a little alarm clock in my bullet journal, or how to draw a banner, I simply head to my favorite How to Doodle accounts on Instagram.
There is so much artistic talent out there in Instagram-land, there’s no need to fret if you aren’t the most talented artist. Find a favorite How to Doodle account and learn!
