My New Cell Phone Case from Society6!

purple zentangle samsung galaxy s4 case I am loving my new cell phone case I ordered from Society6.com!  The colours are vibrant and the design is clear.  Also the quality seems to be pretty good, but I will update this post after I have seen how to holds up to wear and tear.

This one features my Purple Tangle design which can be found here,, and available for several phone models as well as other items like pillows, totes etc!

Anyways I hope you are all having a great weekend so far 🙂  It’s a sunny day here in Vancouver so I am heading out for a bike ride.

Re-Imagining Tangle Patterns in 3D

floral 3d zentangle art

I have been working with this new floral zentangle inspired design as I posted earlier this month.

For my latest Drawing class assignment I attempted to re-imagine the pattern as a “3D drawing”, which was the focus of the assignment.

Above is the design drawn on foam board and cut out using an X-Acto Knife.  I mounted it on the wall slightly raised away from the wall (about 1 inch, using small pieces of foam board) so that you can see the shadows through the parts of the pattern I removed.  The piece is about 1.5 x 1.5 feet big.  I may paint it or colour it in the future, but won’t have time before it’s due.

Below is my second successful experiment with this pattern, drawn with permanent marker on a Styrofoam ball.  First I painted the ball with a few layers of white acrylic paint.

There were a few other attempts I made that did not turn out but I guess you don’t know until you try!  Just to give you an idea of what I was working from here is what the pattern looks like in it’s original 2D form:

Anyways I am working on about 5 other projects at once for my courses so I will have lots more to post in the future, so stay tuned!

If you like my work or want more information please visit my website, or my Zazzle store, and follow me on Facebook for updates about my work!

Have a great weekend everyone, and a Happy Thanksgiving weekend to my fellow Canadians!

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.

Miniature Tangled ACEOs – Lips and Face

aceo cards batch1 small

My latest creative venture involves, as the title indicates, creating these miniature zentangle inspired/collage drawings.  This is my first batch of 3.  They are also known as ACEO’s which stands for Art Cards, Editions and Originals.

ACEO’s are 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.

My plan is to throw these babies up on eBay to see if I get any takers!  They will be listed for under $10 and are very cheap to ship.

However, I want to make a good sized batch of them first before I attempt to sell, so it may be  a few weeks before I get that going.

Feedback is welcome!

UPDATE:  I am not longer selling on Ebay but you can find these and other works available for purchase in my Zazzle and Society6 stores!
