When I was preparing for a recent event, I came across some doodles by Chuck that seemed to me a glimpse into the way his genius expressed itself. I imagined Chuck sitting in his studio, likely talking on the phone while his hand casually sketched whatever bubbled out.
I'm sure there was seldom an intent when he started a doodle, but instead, he absentmindedly allowed it to occur.
I think I most enjoy the way that there is no pattern or distinct symmetry, while at the same time, there is wonderful design and grace that dances from the page.
I wish I had a stop action recounting of how some of these doodles came to life to experience how they started and stopped.
As you'll see, many times a name or a phone number or a note is embedded into the doodle as the real basis for the pad lying before him.
