The Art of Doodling: Cocteau, Warhol and Twain

The Paris Review has an excerpt from the book Scrawl: an A to Z of Famous Doodles by Todd Strauss-Schulson, Caren Strauss-Schulson, and Claudia Strauss-Schulson which looks into the legendary “doodle” collection of their father.

From the piece:

Over the course of his career, he (David Schulson) amassed arguably the most impressive private collection of drawings, scribbles, and autographs in the world.

A sketch from Queen Victoria. Not to be confused with Pab Sugenis’s “The New Adventures of Queen Victoria.”

Does anyone else think that the Tennessee Williams doodle at the link appears to have been drawn not with a paintbrush but with magic marker?
