One day, I felt just fed up with drawing realistic pictures. I wanted to do something more abstract. But I didn't have a good solid idea for an abstract work at that moment.
As a result, I got a bit frustrated, took a piece of paper and drew a furious zigzag with a violet oil pastel. I didn't think even once about any meaning or purpose of this shape. It was the first thing my instinct and intuition told me to do. Then I added more violets and purples here and there, a yellow background with some tangled orange lines... This is how my first scribble was born.
I call it a scribble because it is neither a drawing (which I understand as a work that was made with care, effort and attention, even if it's completely abstract) nor a sketch (which is done to capture an idea quickly, usually with the intention to turn it into a more elaborate picture later). And both drawings and sketches require some level of artistic skill/awareness/knowledge etc. A scribble doesn't require this because it's a collection of raw shapes and lines on paper, not meant to have intricate details or even good composition but still a complete work, not just preparation for something. It's a recording of what my imagination did when it was set completely free for a while. The relation between a drawing and a scribble is like between the reality and a dream. Of course I had to choose the category "Drawings" here on DeviantArt but I don't think my scribbles really belong there. My picture called "The Truth" is what I consider a drawing, a bit spontaneous but also planned and made with a lot of effort.
I'm writing this to tell you what I discovered: that you don't have to draw anything meaningful if you don't feel like doing it. Just scribble some bits and pieces on paper. Later you can look at it and figure out what was going on in your subconsciousness. It can be very helpful to gain peace of mind, like meditation. And it's fun to see that other people look at your work and see completely different things. They see what is going on in their minds, as if they were looking in a kind of mental mirror.
Maybe you already know all that stuff, but I hope that some of you who read this post will find it useful.
I think that the 11 scribbles I submitted here are enough to illustrate the concept. I'm not going to publish any more unless they happen to be particularly interesting. But if you want more you can always scribble one or two for yourself, you don't even need to know how to draw ;)
Scribble 11
"(...) a picture produced carelessly or hurriedly." - Oxford Dictionary

I decided to let go of my conscious self while drawing. This is why it contains no objects or symbols. Just a snapshot of my inner world at a certain moment, something that can't be expressed with any words or figurative pictures.

Black and white markers on brown paper, A4 format.
