I like doodling, and I don’t like to read the newspapers! – Ankita shares. – Basically, this is an art experiment…how art can help develop a certain habit. It is an attempt to make me hold the newspaper in my hand every day so that I can doodle on it somewhere. And read some news while I’m at it!

I post my doodles on the newspapers on the IDON blog. It started as a fun thing and now I have a lot of fun, quirky portraits of people, doodled on the newspapers. And I now know a little more of what’s happening in the world around me.
