Matthew Cruickshank (Art Director at Google Doodles) speaks about his sketchbook-ing road-trip down historic Route 66 from Chicago to Los Angeles to create a … doodle!

The question that drives the conversation is this - How far will a Doodler go for a Google Doodle? The answer ~2500 miles! But another answer - hundreds of pages of sketchbook drawings. Still another answer - hours under a hot sun by the side of a desolate road.

Matthew speaks about the abiding role of sketchbooks in his life, drawing from real life as a way to “be grounded”, and the incredible work of Google Doodles in our lives.
