I filled up a sketchbook the other day, which is a satisfying thing to do. And I didn’t even realize I was doing it at the time. I bought some colored Micron pens at Michaels and felt like playing around with them while watching TV. The first thing I saw was a Burger King advertisement with ice cream cones, so this happened…
Turns out it was the last page.
A few days later, I opened a new sketchbook. First pages are kind of intimating. I looked up one of my favorite artists, Marc Chagall, and drew a chicken inspired by him.
Come to find out I didn’t even use the first page. I accidently drew my lady on the third page, so I still have to do something awesome on the first.
I’ve been having fun using Zentangle patterns. If you haven’t heard of it, Zentangle is a thing right now, a phenomenon. Kind of like glorified doodling. Meditative and relaxing. Repeating patterns. They have books and even classes about Zentangle, but I just find things online. Like this that I used in the “grass” of my drawing.
There are a never-ending amount of those Zentangle patterns. They are a great spring board.
And to close, here is a picture of me and some lovely ladies at a recent wedding.
