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!

Water Mandala

Hello everyone,

I have a new design in my shops called “Water Mandala”.

This mandala was originally drawn by hand, then scanned and layered over top of a photo I took of the water in a swimming pool!

I think it turned out pretty nice on the products in my Society6 and Redbubble stores.  I really love the texture and colour of the swimming pool water, and the mandala stands out nicely layered over it in white.  What do you guys think?

Galaxy Yin Yang

I created a new collage piece to share with you all today, Galaxy Yin Yang!

I made several of these tangle style yin yang designs a while ago and have been re-purposing them in various ways ever since.  I thought this time that it might look cool layered over a galaxy background!

Here is how it turned out on some of the items in my Society6 and Rebubble stores:

New Mexico Bull Skull

Wow, can you guys believe it’s already November??  It’s almost time to get ready for Christmas! Haha.

Anyways, I have a new design in my shop!  I call it, New Mexico Bull Skull.

This piece is influenced by my time living in Santa Fe, New Mexico (some 10 years ago now). I have found myself reminiscing about it lately for some reason.

The background photo is one I took of the landscape just outside of Santa Fe, in a wild place I used to go with my friends “romping” (aka off-roading).  The dirt road takes you all the way to the Rio Grande river!

The bull skull itself is a common symbol of the Southwest and is a feature of several of Georgia O’Keefe’s paintings (she lived in Abiquiu, New Mexico, which is where she made most of her famous artwork.)

New Mexico is a very cool and magical place, if you ever have the chance to go there I recommend checking it out!

Here is how this design turned out on some of the products in my Society6 and Redbubble stores!

Sunset Ying Yang Mandala

Hey guys!

I have been super busy this week as I just started a new job, but I managed to complete a new design this weekend, called Sunset Yin Yang Mandala!

I am really enjoying creating these digital collage mandala pieces, as I get to use both digital and traditional techniques by combining my hand drawn mandalas with my digital photographs!

Plus — I’ve finally found an artistic use for some of my photographs, which is great!

This design looks nice on the products in my Society6 and RedBubble stores.

Below is a sample, but check out those websites to see the full product lines!

What do you guys think of this piece? Feel free to leave any comments you may have below.

Since I’ve had some good feedback so far on these I think I will make a few more like this 🙂  My mandalas seem to be selling quite well recently, which is awesome.

Make sure you follow my blog so you don’t miss my next post!

Have a great week everyone!

Tangled Eye Design

A new design -“Tangled Eye” – available now in my Society6 store!

This is the second of several zentangle-inspired, doodle art designs I will be sharing over the next few weeks.  If you missed the last one you can see it here!

They are all drawn in ink using my Speedball Art Products Calligraphy Pen and Ink Set, combined with collage elements. As part of my final project for my University course, I attempted to abstract the doodles and make them larger-scale.

I quite like how this abstract eye turned out and I think it fits nicely on some of Society6’s products:
