How I Survive Corporate Meetings

Here’s an oldie-but-goodie originally published in 2007. These were the formative times of the artist known as Doodlesam… before he had the courage to create his own art website… before he had the audacity to have his own Facebook page… back when he thought Instagram was a quick cracker… when he was simply a mild-mannered computer programmer scratching out doodles in meetings.

In other words, here are some old crappy doodles for your amusement.

I have a tendency to doodle while in meetings at work. Sometimes I do it just to keep myself awake. Sometimes I do it because most meetings are torturously BORING.

Sometimes… I get caught. My manager saw this first picture below in a meeting yesterday and asked, “Is that drawing of anyone in particular?”

It was tempting to say, “Not really. But you inspired the dumb look in his eyes!”

I swear that most meetings are unnecessary and contribute to the overall dumbing-down of our society. These doodles are proof of just how dumb some of us are becoming.

(If you can decipher my handwriting, you may find tidbits of oddity here and there.)
