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 was inspired by Easter and the flowers of Spring.

Here it is also available as a greeting card from my Zazzle store.

 

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 Space Inspired Digital Artwork

Hope everyone is having a nice weekend. It’s a long one here for Victoria Day, woo hoo!!

This is a new galaxy-inspired digital piece I made recently and added to my Society6 store!

I’ve been playing around with this online image editing tool called Pixlr.
It’s not nearly as powerful as Photoshop but it is free and accessible on phones and tablets which is how I made this piece!

Here is another galaxy and planet inspired piece I made using the same program, on my tablet:

These images don’t look to shabby on some of the products either:

The Pool – Linocut Print

The Pool – Linocut Print

This is one of several projects I recently completed for my 400 level Printmaking course.  The image is supposed to kind of look like a swimming pool, created from a photograph I took during the summer.   However I do think it looks pretty abstract, in a good way!  It currently comes in an edition of 5 (as completed for the course), but I will probably make more in the future so I am not sure how many there will be in total.

I have made some other work from this same pool photograph which I will be posting shortly, so stay tuned 🙂

With that said, my BA program has finally come to an end!  I won’t officially graduate until May but in terms of credits and courses, I am done.  Now on to bigger and better things I hope! (ie, finding a job!)

I am still wrapping up some loose ends around campus including some final exams, but from now on should be able to post more frequently again!

As usual if you like my work please follow my blog, follow me on Facebook or Instagram, or check out my website for more artwork!  You can also purchase my designs on products in my Zazzle store.  They make great Holiday gifts!

Have a great weekend everyone,

New Artwork – Ink Fish

ink and watercolor fish painting

This new painting is a little different from my usual style, done for a class assignment.

At it’s core is an ink “spill” on a piece of paper which was given to us students by our professor.

I am actually quite pleased with how it turned out, so I thought I would share!

It is painted using a combination of ink and watercolour on paper. I blew on the ink to create the effect seen around the fins and tail of the salmon-like creature.

Enjoy!

As usual, if you like my designs please follow my blog and follow me on Facebook for updates about my latest work.
You can also check out my website and my Zazzle store for more info and designs for sale!

More new things coming soon, so stay tuned 🙂

Have a great day,

Tangled Sandal

Here is another ACEO sized zentangle (2.5″ x 3.5″) I made recently, inspired by the summer, called “Tangled Sandal” .

So far my endeavor to sell these things on eBay has been a total failure in the first couple of weeks.  But, as long as I can continue to list them for free I might as well keep on trying!

I was also thinking about giving Zazzle a shot.  I can upload my designs on to stationary and accessories or clothing, which might be kind of fun! I will have to do some more research first though to find out if it’s worth it or not.  Etsy is another option for the future, but I wanted to get a few sales under my belt before venturing on to there.

Anyways enjoy my latest work, and if you like this please check out my website http://www.julieerindesigns.com.

You can also find this original piece for sale on eBay for very cheap, http://www.ebay.ca/usr/julieerindesigns.

Thanks everyone and have a great day!

Tangled Face with Sunglasses – ACEO Art Card

I’ve been making so many of these little miniature artworks lately!  This is my latest piece, drawn with my new Faber Castel Pitt artist pens combined with collage.

I am trying to work a little bit with shading to make them really pop!

ACEO stands for Art Cards, Editions and Originals.

ACEO’s are miniature artworks the size of baseball cards, 2.5 x 3.5 inches in size, and they are a spin off of ATC’s or Artist  Trading Cards.  They are highly collectible (and affordable), and they come in a variety of styles which are sold on eBay and other websites.

Have a great day,
