Recently I have discovered an new-to-me art form. It's called Zentangle. Basically, it's controlled doodling. That's right up my alley. I have been a doodler since I was a kid. I always had a note pad next to the phone, not for taking messages, but for doodling while I was talking. Zentangle has gotten me to return to the idea of thinking about design, shape, pattern, etc. I did my first Zentangle a week ago. It looked like this.
Right now I am only working in black and white. I have purchased some higher quality pens for this work. You don't want to use a Sharpie because it will bleed through the paper and a Flair will bleed on you. Sooner or later I will probably start using some color, but I really find the black and white designs fun. If you want to know more about this art form you can simply Google "Zentangles". If you have a Pinterest account, just search Zentangles and you will find some amazing examples. That's all for now. Have a blessed week-end.
