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!

A New Design! Tree of Tangles

zendoodle tree trunk rings artwork

My latest design, titled “Tree of Tangles” (and it’s inverse) is finally finished!

I drew the original black version using my Faber-Castell Pitt Artist Drawing Pens in my Pro-Art Canson 9-Inch by 12-Inch Universal Sketch Book. I then scanned the image into Photoshop and created a second image using it’s inverse!

It is inspired by the rings of a tree which are visible when the trunk is cut horizontally.

Trees are a prominent feature of daily life here in British Columbia, Canada and were a big part of my childhood.  B.C. is home to some pretty old and huge ones, such as the 800 year old Douglas Firs on Vancouver Island.  If you ever have a chance to visit this region of the world I definitely recommend checking them out!

Anyway, the prints of these two designs are now available in my Society6 and Zazzle stores!

Below is a small sample of other available styles:

I hope you guys have enjoyed seeing my latest designs!  Feel free to comment or ask any questions if you have them 🙂

Have a great week.

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!

Tangled Hands and Other Art Projects

I’m into the last month of school so things are getting crazy busy for me!

While I have a few minutes I wanted to share some of the best artworks I have made so far this term.  This one above is titled “Tangled Hands” aka “Healing Hands” in which I was dealing with the idea of trauma and the healing effects art can have. It is pretty large sized, like 24×36 inches so it took me forever!

I used a combination of watercolour and Sharpie pen to create this piece.

Below is an acrylic painting inspired by the historical painter Guiseppe Archimboldo.  It is called “Wine and Cheese”.  I know it’s a little funny looking, but look up Archimboldo’s works they are amazing.

Lastly I’ve added some psychedelic Op-Art I drew in my sketchbook using pencil crayons.

In other news, someone has asked to feature my recent Butterfly Zentangle piece in their online Art Zine!  It comes out in a month or two so I will definitely be sharing the link to that.

In other goods news, my boyfriend is taking me to Ibiza this summer!  Sooo exited!  I have only been to Europe one other time and I loved it so I know it’s going to be amazing.

Anyways I hope to share many more things I’ve made with you all soon, probably more once the school year is all finished.
