57 Fun Surfaces to Doodle On

From Coloring Book Walls and Dresses to Whiteboard Rooms

— January 24, 2011 — Art & Design
Sure there's been a huge leap in tech innovations that let you jot down notes, to-do lists and sketches on digital devices, but for some people nothing beats real-life surfaces to doodle on. This cluster goes beyond sheets of paper and whiteboards, however.

If your head is always flooded with ideas, or if your artsy side refuses to rest, then you'll love these surfaces to doodle on. Some include clothes you can color, coloring book walls, chalkboard fridges, and a brainstorming capsule covered in whiteboard walls for the super creatives.
