It helps me stay focused on the pastor's sermon if I'm drawing repetitive shapes and patterns. :)

I used to do that a bunch back when I attended church! (I moved and never found another church I liked.) 
It's such a good way to focus!

WOW! This is definitely going in my favorites. I should start doing church doodles too. I don't really take any notes. I stay focused because my Uncle is the pastor.

I'm so glad I'm not the only one. People don't realize that when you have ADD you have to doodle to concentrate.... I can tell you every word the pastor says afterwards. so pretty

They're all so gorgeous that I can't pick a favorite XD. I will say that the "In Christ Alone" one really speaks to me (literally...it has words :P). I needed to see something like this today. Thank you for sharing your art and faith.

I seriously love the "In Christ Alone" one.

It's really hard to find other Christians on the Internet sometimes, so I was super excited when I realized you were Christian.

I like doing doodles, but I don't do a large pattern in one section and another large pattern in another. But I like how the section patterns look, your patterns are really cool.

This is wonderful. It's both calming and inspiring. :)
I especially like the one with the hymn lyrics. It's one of my favourite hymns. I often find myself singing the 'No power of hell' verse when feeling rough. :) That panel reminds me a little of some of Mary Fleeson's work. It's got a similar feel about it.
But again, lovely!

Hahah I am so glad I'm not the only one who does this! It sounds bad but I literally fall asleep otherwise, even if I try to take sermon notes.

Your doodles are much prettier than my random swirls though. <3 Very lovely.

I can't get over how pretty this is. I wish I could blow it up even larger. Wonderful job, I really love your grasp of stylized concepts like this (as opposed to people like me who pretty much draw people and nothing else XD; ). They're really relaxing to look at and I can't get over the intricacy. And that one about the hymn was really comforting to me. =) Art + reminders of Christ's love = quick pick-me-up.

oh me too! I love to doodle all over my sermon notes...and sometimes some up with a cool idea! I always wish to crochet during church, but I think it will be too distracting to others :P

Yours are great! :dalove:

Wow, these are beautiful, and meaningful too! It's cool how you can use sketching to help you focus in church. I've tried it and unfortunately it doesn't work for me; guess I'm too easily distracted! :P I especially love the "In Christ Alone" one. That song gives me chills every time. You're work is always so beautiful and glorifying to God Sharpie. :) As long as you live, never stop drawing!
