Zentangle Compilation

Here’s a little something I whipped up to share my story about the current work I’ve been doing. It is all Zentangle inspired artwork starting with my very first sketch leading to my most current ZIA. Enjoy!

It started with just a tangle….
I decided to practice in color….
I enjoyed creating repeating patterns…
…but I also enjoy drawing animals…
So I combined the two and drew my pets…
The drawings were flowing and natural for me to create…
So I decided to keep doing more animals…
I starting coloring each piece with colored pencils with a black outline….
RIP DeSoto
It started making sense to me…

The universe already has patterns all throughout it…

Just like in Zentangle….
I just needed to pay attention to see the patterns….

The world around me became like one of those “Magic Eye” posters….
Like there was a hidden image for me to find no matter where I looked….
I am experimenting with different techniques…
….to portray the world how I see it….
Everytime I finish a drawing….
I cannot wait to start another one….
So I will continue to create these pieces….
….until I’ve discovered all the patterns of the universe!


Thanks for stopping by this week. I hope you enjoyed my compilation! Let me know what you think in the comments below! I hope you had a great first day of spring.

Until next time,
