More playing around with tangled lines and the structures I can create with them.
Another foray into textures and intersecting lines. It’s such a simple technique, but produces so many different types of images depending on how the building blocks are combined. I’m having loads of fun with these!
More or my playing around with textured surfaces and the way they can be made to overlap on the page. This one actually started out deliberately from a simple hexagon and then overran the whole page.
More exploration of abstract lines and the ways they can relate to one another. This is a continuation of what started out from the idea of ‘zentangles’ a few days ago and has turned into something all its own. Depending on how the page is oriented, feel free to tilt your head or your monitor ;-), different perspectives pop out and create different structures.
The inside cover of my new moleskine pocket cahier, purchased for the purpose of taking notes and jotting down ideas on the go. I am happy with it’s ease at being tucked in back pocket, but the paper is much thinner and absorbs water easily (which I found out when I went to scan this image in) that then causes the pilot G2 ink to bleed through several pages (which I’ve never had a problem with in my usual pocket sketchbooks). Anyway, I got lost in the lines and their relationships with one another and really had fun creating this one.
I heard about this doodling technique called ‘zentangles’ the other day from Bob (it seems like what I’ve been doing in the margins of notebooks for years now rather than a ‘new art from’ as the official website claims, but I have to give them credit for coining a cool-sounding name) and decided to try it out on the first page of my new moleskine sketch book. Several more are on the way, too; I find it a wonderful way to lose myself in art some evenings.
Another collage made possible by my heavy tea habit; mostly chai at work and then chamomile or another calming blend in the evening before bed.
I like giving my sketchbooks titles, but I like to let the title happen somewhere along the way. In this case, I was messing around with my new prismacolor colored pencils and the pocket inside the back cover and ended up with a name for this one (and just a few pages before it’s full, too).
Fire and Flame
The edge of a page turned into a leaping fire from phoenix feathers wrapped around from the previous page. Done with prismacolor and a pilot G-2 black pen.
