National Doodle Day is a fundraising event created by Epilepsy Action to help raise money to support their work.

People from all across the UK have got involved and a large number of celebrities have also contributed doodles that are being auctioned off on eBay.

Not only is this a great way to raise awareness about the work of Epilepsy Action but we will always encourage people to doodle more.

As we’ve previously said, doodling is good for you and there is a growing body of research that suggests it can help with information retention and creativity.

With that in mind, our Online Communications Manager Ollie wanted to share some of his favourite Instagram doodlers (and one calligrapher) to help give you some inspiration for your own doodles.

Now excuse us while we take a quick doodle break!
