Mail Doodles

My BFF's birthday is coming up, and I'm sending her a little something in the mail. 

I made this label using a recycled paper grocery bag (one of these days I'll remember to buy a roll of kraft paper), a Tombow brush marker, and my trusty Copic Multiliners. My friend's name is written in whimsical calligraphy while all the other lettering is in a playful serif style. I added the doodles because the label looked too plain without any embellishment, and I didn't want to overdo it.

Doodling seems like such a hot thing right now. I've discovered so many Instagram accounts where people are posting doodle diary drawings. Doodle diaries—that's probably the technical term. Autobiographical doodles? Anyway, they're cute, and I wanted to give it a whirl, so I drew myself and my friend. I can't wait to send this off in the mail!
