Lunchtime Challenge

Where do I begin with this piece. I knew that I wanted to do something that seemed like it was feathering out, but I took it quite literal with the feathers. I had seen a few ways to do some fun and quick feathering and I went with it. I just like that I completed it in 45 minutes or less.

What is your favorite part of this doodle?

Lunchtime Challenge

So, today I just decided to doodle at lunch today. These  were done around 45 minutes. They are by far not my best doodles, but I feel like it’s important to show the viewers even the pieces that didn’t take any time to complete.

Using doodling as a relaxation technique has raised my production in the afternoon. I don’t find myself hitting the 3pm wall that I am so used to hitting. Not to mention, I am using my downtime to produce something unique.

What relaxation techniques do you use? Answer in the comments below, I would love to learn new techniques!

Joey’s Weekly Challenge #135

I’m always amazed at what Joey comes up with for the challenges and I absolutely love doing anything with circles. In this challenge, found here, you can see that part of the challenge was also doing three tangle patterns. Disco, Drogon, and Msst. None of these have I attempted before, so the whole thing was challenging.


Joey’s Weekly Challenge #128

Ever since I started doing these spider webs, I can’t get enough of them. Maybe it is the time of the year with all the spooky decor, but I love drawing them and adding them to different pieces. This challenge was a lot of fun and of course, I got to add my webs.

The funny thing about this is being arachnophobic that I am and yet love the artistry of webs. Even my 7-year-old points that out. *teehee*

Anyways, You can find the challenge here.

Joey’s Weekly Challenge #124

This one was fun and very out of my comfort zone. I learned a new tangle called Gra-vee. All the while I had to use a circle string with a loop in the center. I decided to add color to this piece because I felt like it gave it more dimension.

Diva Challenge #278

This entry speaks to me in a crazy way. I didn’t set out to make this look like an eye, but it does. There is so much beauty in the world around us and we fail to take it in. I love the way this turned out.

Diva Challenge #278-Knight star

The inspiration behind this drawing was the zentangle knight star. It was just a beautifully twisted background for this all seeing eye.

Diva Challenge #277

I had so much fun with this challenge. I just knew that I needed to do mandalas as soon as she said circles. These mandalas were so much fun to create. I didn’t even know how many mandalas or how many layers each mandala had, I just went with my gut. This one took me 2 days to do, roughly 3 hours each day. I simply used my 11×17 sketchbook and my Staedtler triplus fineliner pen
