dos "dodle away" here mean "they begin designing the stamp, but absent-minded? " Two designers at the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, feeling utterly lost, neatly laid out their tools and doodled away at a John F. Kennedy commemorative stamp. (Though meant to be tentative, those Friday sketches were flawless; four days later they were in the hands of the Postmaster General, and the stamp was issued the following spring.)

"Doodling" suggests they were just sketching ideas for the stamp, drawings that weren't intended to be a final design, but just possibilities.
