Zentangle Inspired Drawings

Hi guys!  Today I am sharing with you 6 different zentangle inspired drawings I have done over the past few years.

Most of these combine elements of drawing and collage, and were all done in my sketchbook using Sharpie markers.

Several of these designs are available as prints and on other products in my Society6 store and other shops.

This one combines a lot of different Zentangle inspired patterns and does not have any collage elements.  This one is not available as a print.

This one which incorporates different lips cut out of a women’s magazine is one of my favourites!

New Mandala Patterns

Here are 2 new mandala patterns I created by re-using and re-mixing my best selling Rose Gold Mandala design!

These designs were also inspired by some of my other best selling designs, including my Blue and Gold Mandala Pattern and my Rose Gold Mandala on a White Marble background.

I think these 2 mandala designs turned out pretty nicely and I have uploaded them to my Redbubble and Society6 stores!  Check out a few samples of the products available below.  They make a beautiful tapestry or throw pillow.

Drawing of Mountain Mandala

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.

Free Valentines Day Cards to Colour Yourself!

cards preview1

February 14th is coming up soon, so make your loved one a beautiful and unique card with these 3 free printable and color-able Valentine’s Day cards.

Click here to download the Free Valentine’s Day cards in PDF format from Dropbox

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.

Check out my other free printable coloring pages here.

Have a great and Happy Valentine’s Day!

Cheers,

“Love Life” Mandala feat. Pantone’s Color of the Year: Ultraviolet

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:
