Writers doodles

I don't know why but I think that doodles are really amazing...maybe because they are slightly more unedited than other works...

here are a few from a flavorwire post today...

This semester I’m helping curate an exhibition on the visual work of various authors at the Lilly Library on Indiana University’s campus. It will feature pieces by Kurt Vonnegut, Henry Miller, Charles Bukowski and other authors whose artwork is housed in the Lilly’s extensive collection. Right now, I’m responsible for sifting through the myriad of work we have by Sylvia Plath. Today I started looking through some of her diaries, many in which she loved to include illustrations of dreams and bits of her day-to-day life. Here is an illustration of a nightmare she had where she was being chased by a hot dog and a marshmallow.

Amy Auscherman of Kool Things tells us that she is helping to curate an exhibition of the visual work of authors at the Lilly Library at Indiana University. The image above is from Sylvia Plath's notebook where she illustrated a nightmare she had about being chased by a hotdog and a marshmallow.

Another one I really liked was Nabokov's corrections of Kafka's translations:


Actually, agree with him...corrugated is much better than "stiff arched segments"--he says in one word what the translator says in three... From space in text




This is also cool...a self portrait by Borges after he lost his sight...

This is good too...
