Doodles—From the Beginning

  • Denys N. Wheatley


The beginning for me was the year 1998 when, this subject. Thduring an episode of severe depression, I began to doodle, which I had previously never done, as I thought. I just took to my bed in a catatonic “trance” that overwhelms one in depression. Sporadic indulgence in art during a scientific career, apart, this is when art became much more meaningful for me as a regular activity to help with depressive phases, and subsequently as a preventive measure.
