Doodle assist

You know that feeling when you start making something with an idea in your mind and it doesn’t work out, but you end up making something else that’s way better that your initial idea? Well, that happened today.

There is this cool instrument/toy that looks like this. I’m not sure what it’s called, though.


So you put your pencil in one of those holes and move the “gear” in a circular motion. You continue doing that until the pattern begins to overlap. The farther you are from the center of the gear, the more spread out is the design.


I thought about making paper cut-outs with these but the design was too closely knit and made it frustrating to cut. After damaging two pieces, I started colouring whatever was left of them with a sketch pen. I think it turned out well.


It almost looks like it’s been printed. I’d call it a success!
