I'm a graphic designer and surface pattern / textile designer. My doodles start out in notebooks, done during spare moments in random places: meetings, airports, in bed at night just before I go to sleep. Afterwards I scan the doodle, import it into Illustrator where I do a line trace and convert the file to vector. Then comes the fun part - colouring in the doodle digitally with Photoshop, or printing it out and using pencil crayons or markers.
