Save your napkins, envelopes and scrap pieces of paper, because DOODLES is looking into what you're drawing while you're supposed to be doing something else.
When Ernie Peraza heard we were featuring doodles, he sent over a ton of things he and his customers are working on at Just Blaze, an urban arts supply store on Camelback Road in Phoenix.
The shop and gallery hosts artwork (on the walls, tables, and benches) from a variety of local artists and is currently building a graffiti park where visitors and staff can hang out and paint.
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
