A doddle is an unfinished or half effort drawing or design performed by an absent minded artist. Doodles can be of just about anything. Often found in the corners of to-do lists, along the margins of homework, on the back of your hand, in bathroom stalls, on phone bills, etc... Doodling can be therapeutic, relieving stress, and exercising the right side of the brain. It can also be a good method for procrastination. I compulsively doodle when I'm on the phone.
