Famous Compulsive Drawers – Dostoievsy

Yet another great use of doodling – summoning inspiration. I worked pretty damn well with this particular writer.

According to the * “Dostoyevsky’s Doodles” exhibition description, Dostoevsky’s notes to himself “represent that key moment when the accumulated proto-novel crystallized into a text. Like many of us, Dostoevsky doodled hardest when the words came slowest.” Some of Dostoevsky’s character descriptions, argues scholar Konstantin Barsht, “are actually the descriptions of doodled portraits he kept reworking until they were right.”
