The Doodle Project started off as a fun and simple way of remembering people: by taking a Polaroid photo of a person and having them doodle something small on the back. (Un)fortunately, the backs of Polaroids are black and are difficult to draw on. With a friend’s suggestion to put the photo in a notebook and have people doodle next to their image, The Doodle Project has evolved from a few pages of close friends to a ethnography experiment by means of doodling. A two step recipe to an explosion of creativity: what once was an ordinary piece of paper turns into a valuable possession. A unique and highly personal glimpse of each person’s personality.
Kevin Lajoie is a long time doodler and more recent photographer. With over 300 pages and counting, Kevin hopes to continue this project until he fulfills his goal of creating a coffee table book.
