Often times I find a friend that appreciates my mandalas to ask what they see. This time I was pleasantly surprised to find that several of them saw a spinning flower. This mandala started out as something completely different. I wasn’t even sure which direction I wanted to go. With every passing moment, I saw … Read More
This mandala was completed on a 12×12 sheet of paper. Sometimes I try to bite off a little more than I can chew sometimes. With the amount of grid lines that I drew, this piece became way more detailed than I had originally planned and took over 8 hours to complete. I do like the … Read More
I don’t really have much to say about these except that I tried a few different techniques while drawing them. I don’t have the exact dates when I finished them because it was over the weekend. So I will share them all with you now. The wonderful about each of these designs is that they … Read More
What do you get for someone who you know loves dolphins and the color blue, but a dolphin mandala. I love being able to share these projects now that Christmas is over. I wanted to add some special details so I added a few metallic pens to just give a little life to the dolphin … Read More
This mandala was loosely based on Metatrons Cube from Sacred Geometry. Sacred Geometry is a very interesting topic as far as Mandalas go. There is way too much information for me to include in a single post, but that may be something I explore more in the future. This mandala, specifically, was designed after Metatrons Cube, which is … Read More
This mandala project was so fun to do. it took me over the course 3 days to plan and complete it, but I feel like it is one of my best pieces yet.
Those of you that have been following me may have noticed I have been MIA for a few days. The reason is because we lost my brothers wife tuesday night and we’ve been dealing with all of this. I was working on this piece during my last conversation with her and when my brother called … Read More
One of the things that I have found that I really enjoy doing is mandalas. I love how they look more complicated than they were to draw. I love the design and I love how no two are alike. I hope you enjoy this simple mandala I did over lunchtime at work.
So what can I say about this except, my 2-year-old felt like I was doing it wrong? She, in all her glory, decided to “help” me with my project I had already spent 2 hours on. At the moment, in which I noticed, she looked up at me, pen in hand, proud of her accomplishments. … Read More
As this piece started to progress, I began to see the machine parts coming out of it. When it was done, I felt like a mechanical piece had snuck itself into my mandala. But I love the way it finished.
Sacred Geometry. This is something I just recently came across. I thought it would be something I could use to give me some awesome shapes for my mandalas. This one is called Flower of Life. It is created using a sequence of circles, branching out from a center point. It is also known as “seed … Read More
Let me start by saying that this mandala you see is completely hand drawn. No compass, no grid lines, nothing. Just my notebook and my pen. It was super fun but super scary at the same time. I have been in the middle of watching a series on Netflix with my honey so I did … Read More
This was fun to do. I absolutely messed up horribly and had to adjust my original design each time. But I think in the end it worked out beautifully! This is done on 11×14 Sketch Paper and drawn with Staedtler triples fine liner and Marvy LePlumeII markers.
Well, I decided I would try to do some work on freezer paper because it was bigger than anything else I had. So here is my mandala on an 18×18 sheet of freezer paper. I thought that using freezer paper would be ideal because I knew it wouldn’t bleed through and I could really test … Read More
I wanted to post this project. It took me 8.5 hours to complete. It is on 11×14 sketchbook paper. The first and hardest thing to do is determine what shape your Mandala will take. I find it easier to do this part in pencil so that I can get my basic shape using my compass. … Read More
Two days. Yes. Two days it took for me to complete this project. I really enjoy mandalas and now that I know a proper way to do my grid lines, I can be very detailed and that makes my art take more time. I loved every minute of drawing this and there are many mistakes, … Read More
