Seeing as it's National Doodle Day, I thought that I would scan and post a doodle that I did when I was on the phone to a client at work yesterday. If any psychologists are reading, please feel free to enter the dark depths of my subconscious and let me know what it says about me. Am I striving to climb the stairs of success? Is the poor little man overwhelmed by the pressures of the big, bad, world? Or is it a random doodle of a man climbing some stairs?

It's not a man, it's a distorted Star of David, being pushed down the steps. You are an anti-Semite!

It's a gingerbread man about to be eaten by something with big huge jaggedy teeth.

You are oppressed by the world around you.

I'm no psychologist, but I am an artist, therefore fully qualified to interpret and judge your work with my massive amounts of knowledge and experience.

I think it looks like you're walking down the stairs, as if to symbolize that you're fed up and you're getting off this merry-go-round called life (or maybe the stairs symbolize your job...or maybe something's clear, however, that you're fed up with it and wanting to get out). However! Even though you are exiting the stairs, you are still embedded within the box! Your sub-conscious is reaching out to you, saying, "You want to get out, but in reality the box has hedged you in. Go back up those stairs!"

Whether or not you go up or down those stairs, I think the true weight of the drawing lies in the fact that you are wearing MC Hammer Pants. Obviously, this shows that you have no shame.

The most important thing for me to clarify is that, although it is a mindless doodle, I'm certain that the guy is going up the stairs, not down. Defenitely up. This means that if it is a Star of David, Niall, then it could be ascending to heaven. I'm certain that my doodle is not a quasi-religious metaphor though, so I'll rule that out. Simon, I actually quite like your idea. The idea of unseen horror just off-screen is good. Jenny, I don't know what difference going up the stairs makes. Maybe I'm just at the "back up the stairs" point...

I don't think the guy is me, though. I have a neck, and don't wear either MC Hammer pants or jumpsuits.

Justin, whereas I do not know you, I am able to see your picture up on your header and it does not appear that you do have a neck. Just eyeballs, ears, almost a full nose, and shoulders.

Just saying.
