Hi guys! Today I am sharing with you 6 different zentangle inspired drawings I have done over the past few years.
Zentangle is basically the practice of creating art from intricate doodle-like patterns. It is said to help with anxiety and focus. The practice of Zentangle is similar to creating mandalas for therapeutic reasons.
Most of these art pieces combine elements of doodle art drawing with collage. They were all done in my sketchbook using Sharpie markers.
Several of these designs are available as prints and on other products in my Society6 storeand other shops.
This one was inspired by Easter and the flowers of Spring.
My latest creative venture involves creating these miniature zentangle inspired/collage drawings called ACEO art cards. Above is the first one I made which incorporates a woman’s face cut out from a magazine.
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. They are a spin off of ATC’s or Artist Trading Cards. ACEO’s are highly collectible (and affordable), and come in a variety of styles. You can often find them for sale on eBay and other websites.
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!
