Again, guidelines from one page bled through to the next, so I got the opportunity to create something completely different starting from the same beginning.
latest updates: zentangle
This is just another abstract construction I did about a month ago and this is the first chance I’ve had to post it. This reminds me a bit of an amoeba.
The lines I used for a previous abstract construction bled through the page, so I used them again, in reverse, to make something new. The thick lines are done in sharpie while all the details are done with a black Pilot G2 pen.
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.
