Earlier this year, I started doodling funny spiders during a meeting. I was encouraged by those who saw the drawings to develop them further and try and build up a collection. I think people connect with the bugs because they have regular names, they live regular lives, but also just do what bugs do. That's the reason why, a few months and 100 drawings later, a spider and fly called Steve and Dave find themselves going global in their very own book on Amazon called 100 Bug Doodles.

Publishing has come a long way, and I think everyone can have a voice today without having to wait for that elusive call from a big publishing company or spend obscene amounts of money on vanity publishing. Companies like Amazon offer a more direct route to your readers with a very good support system for independent creators.

The great thing about the medium of doodles is that it strips the story down to its core idea. It leaves no excuses for the artist or storyteller. I've seen projects abandoned in the past because "I don't have enough time" or "I don't have the right software" or "I can't draw." The medium of doodles leaves you only with a simple question: What story are you going to tell today? You only need a sheet of paper, a pen, and a phone camera.

Check out my previous posts on Bored Panda here and here.

100 Bug Doodles by Beast Flaps is now available in your country's Amazon store or via BugDoodles.com.

Congrats for making this an absolutely obvious reference to the well-known meme, although you only depicted a fly!
