This speed drawing video I created shows the making of my latest design “Mountain Mandala”!
After drawing the mandala I scanned and edited it using Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop (not shown in the video).
I’ve started creating these videos to work on my recording and editing skills. It’s also just a fun creative project to work on.
The video was recorded on my phone, which is funny because I tried using my old digital camera but it was worse quality than my bottom-of-the-line smartphone! It’s crazy how quickly technology improves.
To position the phone above the drawing surface I used a flexible holding arm I bought from Amazon. To edit the video I used Adobe Premiere Pro.
Mountain Mandala has been uploaded to my various stores, check out some product samples below! I think it looks pretty good on the black background actually.

I always forget to buy a card for Valentine’s day and most other holidays, so I usually wind up DIY-ing one last minute. Inspired by that idea, I decided to create these free color-able Valentine’s cards that can be printed and colored in yourself!
For best results, I recommend printing these on card stock and coloring them in with decent quality pens or colored pencils.
These are designed to be printed on 8.5×11 inch paper and folded in half. The inside is blank so you can add your own personal message and say whatever your heart desires!
These card designs are inspired by zen doodle style drawings.

Have a great and Happy Valentine’s Day!
Inspired by Pantone’s color of the year, Ultraviolet, I made this new floral mandala design with the words “Love Life” in the center!
I haven’t shared any of my latest designs in quite awhile so there are several new pieces in my catalog. If you would like to see them all check out my Society6 page!
Not only was this design inspired by the Pantone color of the year for 2018, but also the quote “Love Life” was inspired by a song by one of my favourite musical artists called Atmosphere.
If you’ve never heard of them and want to have a listen to the song, here it is on Youtube.
My Love Life mandala design has been uploaded to my Society6 and Redbubble stores.
Here are a few of my favourite products:
Love Life Mandala Lightweight Hoody from Rebubble
Love Life Mandala iPhone X Tough Case from Society6
Love Life Mandala Throw Blanket from Society6
Love Life Mandala Throw Pillow or Floor Pillow from Redbubble
Love Life Mandala Sticker from Redbubble
Well that’s all I have for now folks, I hope you are having a great start to 2018.
