The story behind this drawing is that just as every snowflake is different, I have to believe that every raindrop is too. Each raindrop plays an important role in the survival of our planet. Without water, we would all surely perish.

Although I am not an extremist in any way, I do believe that if everyone cleaned up after themselves and worked on their own footprint, we would be way better off.

A new way to mandala?

Well, today I decided to try something sorta new and sorta old. I started with a circle in the middle. Using some of the techniques and fillers I learned from zentangle videos, I added only three major features to the center. After adding everything up to the tentacles, I decided to finish it off with a circle of sorts. Circles were sorta the theme to this piece and I absolutely adore the finished project. This has to be one of my favorites so far.

I would love to know what you think, let me know in the comments below.

Lunchtime Challenge

Well, I have had people tell me this looks like a fish and another tell me it looked like wings, either way, this was my lunchtime doodle today. I hope you like it! Yes, I did it in 45 minutes or less. This was just completed with a sharpie for the larger lines and then I filled it in with a sharpie pen that I had for all the little details.  The amazing thing about this doodle, is that I never intended it to be anything. I just love the way it turned out. It is so bold and yet so detailed. Seems like I should keep this one for a coloring book one day.

Let me know what you think it looks like in the comments below!

Penguin Doodle

As I started drawing this, I noticed throughout that it took the shape of a penguin. I tried to disguise the little guy but he kept coming through.  Either way it was very fun to draw and even more fun to add all the little designs in there. The most interesting thing I kept thinking was, once you see it, it can’t be unseen. Do you see my silly penguin popping through?

Sea Turtle Prompt

Well, I decided for the new year that I was going to be doing random prompts so that it forces me to think outside the box more. So, with the help of my dear friend, Sea Turtle was born. Here is a close up so that you can see some of the details.

One of these days I will be able to take better pictures of my art that is larger than 8.5×11. This one is 11×14. If you have any suggestions on how to take pictures of larger pieces, let me know in the comments below!

Zentangle Sampler

So, I did it, I decided that I was going to take the patterns that I use the most and create a sampler page using just those. I started this by just drawing a bunch of circles. After I drew all the circles, I just decided how I was going to split it up based on the designs I wanted to incorporate.  The problem is that I don’t know these Zentangle names. So let me know in the comments below!

So far I have these added:



Pumpkin Spice

Another Zentangle sampler here. Just some of the tangles that I have really enjoyed using. What a better way to collaborate all the different patterns, than to join them together on a symbol of fall and thankfulness.

Let me know if you have seen any of these tangle patterns before and which are your favorite in the comments below.

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.


Having fun with a tangle called Laflor. It turns into a beautiful flower and the garden scene was just the icing on the cake. I started with the tangle itself. This is such a beautiful tangle that I had to add color to it as well. After giving each tangle some leaves, I decided that adding some squares to the back ground would give it a little character. Then filling the background with a simple line finished it off.

What do you think about this tangle? I would love for you to link your doodles in the comments below!

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.
