A Bit of Planning…

Day 22 of One Zentangle a Day, and it only took me three months to get this far! That’s why I write about the book days rather than calendar days. The book week’s chapter deals with color and talks about … Continue reading

Illusions

The topic of today’s lesson in One Zentangle a Day was “repetition creating transformation,” which ultimately results in more optical illusion. It’s The book’s Day 21, the last day of Chapter 3: Geometric and Organic Patterns. Today’s patterns are Rick’s … Continue reading

Mini Tiles and Their Uses

Such a prosaic title! It’s Day 20 in One Zentangle a Day, and I can’t think of a way to get one of the new patterns to work into a tile.  Ever since the preface to Chapter 2 (Day 8), … Continue reading

Impermanence

While messing around with Day 15’s three tangles–Yincut, Locar, and Verdigogh–I got an idea that would also include the three patterns from Day 14–Dyon, Chainging, and Keeko. It’s not a Zentangle, nor Zentangle Inspired Art (ZIA); but I think I … Continue reading
