Re: Music in the Artroom

Is that really true? I doodle constantly when I am in meetings and
such, and I always did when I had lecture classes/ discussion classes
in college too- I find I am better focused when I am doodling, and if I
don't have a pencil and paper then my mind really starts to wander.
I think- but I don't have any research- that doodling is really
different than serious "right brain zone" drawing somehow. Does anyone
have any real research type info on it?
