Zentangle Inspired ACEO Art Cards

My latest creative venture involves creating miniature zentangle inspired/collage drawings like this one.  This is the first one I made.

ACEO stands 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 sites.

Here are some more zentangle inspired mini art cards I’ve created:

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!

Tangled Skull with Headphones

This is a new zentangle style drawing I did of a skull and crossbones wearing headphones!

It is inspired by my recent trip to Ibiza where I saw lots of t-shirts with similar designs but not tangled like this one is.

I drew this design using my Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Drawing Pens in my Pro-Art Canson 9-Inch by12-Inch Universal Sketch Book. I then scanned the drawing into Photoshop and played around with it a bit.

I couldn’t decide if I liked it better with or without the crossbones though so I made both versions!

Jupiter Drawing in Pencil and Conte

This is a drawing of Jupiter which I made for my print class.

I did not wind up making this one into a lithographic print, however I thought it turned out nice enough to share.

This drawing was done in pencil and black conte on paper, 24″ x 36″.

I’m quite enjoying creating these space themed pieces.  Stay tuned for more!

Cheers,

~Julie
