Doodle Therapy is a live drawing show that I created and now host for Adobe Live. On each stream, I chat with a guest about life and art while live drawing — real talk over doodles. As an interactive show, viewers are also encouraged to ask questions, chime in, and draw along with our weekly doodle prompts. It's been amazing to see all of the community art submissions!

In 2021, we are scheduled for a new time on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8-9 AM PST.

New Year, New Horizons with Lauren Hom
Lauren Hom is an all-star letterer and fellow snacks-lover, and we've been internet friends all the way since 2013! On this week's show, we decided to challenge each other to create a piece out of our comfort zones: Lauren, as a letterer, created an illustrative mural with no lettering; and I, as an illustrator who doesn't do much typographic work, explored lettering a phrase. As our last show in 2020, we reflected on the past year and chatted about our big dreams and new horizons for 2021.

Pins & Stickers with Syd Weiler
From their iconic Trash Doves sticker pack and character, to their inventive Photoshop custom brushes, to their delicate, evocative body of work — Syd is a fearless, kind, talented artist who I've admired for many years, and was delighted to have on the show. In this stream, we created a pin and sticker set respectively and talked about our design considerations in designing small pieces of delightful merch. We also ran a giveaway amongst the doodle submissions (of which the prompt was to design a sticker or pin!), and the prize was a set of the pin and stickers that we designed live.

Keycaps Design with Susan Lin
It was a true delight to dive into the world of keycaps design with The Key Company COO and artist extraordinaire Susan Lin, aka mintlodica. This week, we chatted about Susan's inspiring journey from tech design into custom mechanical keyboard design, while working on our own custom keycap designs in Photoshop and Illustrator respectively. We also got technical about the iconography, composition, and design aspects to creating custom keycaps.

Children's Book Illustrations with Anoosha Syed
Anoosha Syed is an illustrator who works in animation and has illustrated over 20+ children's books! On these streams, we created children's book illustrations and discussed the process of working in the publishing industry, pitching, etc. We also talked at length about the business side of art — working with and finding the right agent, social media as a tool, career progression, community, and more.

Comics with Deborah Lee
On these streams with Deb Lee, we dove into the world of sequential art and each created a short-form comic! We also talked a lot about each other's origin stories as illustrators: Deb emailed me when she was a senior at CMU, we met up and got boba, and then she worked with me as an assistant during her senior year (thoughtful cold outreach does pay off — do your research, be respectful, and go for it!). She's completely come into her own as an illustrator and graphic novelist.

Childhood Nostalgia with Amy Wibowo
On these streams featuring the multi-talented Amy Wibowo, we explored inspiration from our favorite childhood memories: TV shows, snacks, movies, etc. and used that to create a pair of new illustrations. I enjoyed our conversation around creative confidence, process, and community as well!
