I suppose everybody doodles on scratch paper during long, boring meetings. "Only Stanley would create doodles like these", says Angelee. It's true. I usually take a "quad pad" and pen to the meetings for notes (which I never end up taking), and I begin making designs in the square grid of the pad. As I add on, I duplicate the patterns on all four sides of the existing pattern and keep building it up. I don't really plan it out, I just add things as I go, and by the end of the meeting, I will have completed an interesting tile pattern. Occasionally I veer from the square pattern, as the example to the right shows (Angelee refers to it as the "antique clock"), but I have a whole folder of various tile patterns like the ones above.
