Line, Pt. 9

Let's look at two things together that we have so far explored separately: line and doodles. The following three drawings were discovered at random on a notepad in the lunch room of the pencil factory where I sometimes do freelance graphic work: 

Do these drawings tell a story? Are they maps of something? Are they somebody's daydream? Are they a continuous narrative? What can we tell from the line? Is it obvious the person who did these drawings was sourcing their imagination, or is there evidence of some reference material? Does the drawing use symbols honed in childhood to communicate information? Does it matter? Do you think these drawings are more interesting as mystery artifacts, or are you searching for their context to derive meaning? Submit your doodles to for future discussion.
