November 23, 2015 26 comments

Thanksgiving turkey

[If you’re wondering what this Zentangle thing is, start HERE.] This week, the Zentangle Diva challenged us to use the tangle Hollibaugh in our tile. Hollibaugh, first deconstructed by a Zentangle Mother Ship son-in-law, is an important part of the Zentangle repertoire because it epitomizes the concept of “drawing behind”.

French tri-color flag

[If you’re scratching your head about this Zentangle thing, start HERE.] I have managed to get myself pretty much day/night reversed.

November 10, 2015 52 comments


[If Zentangle is a foreign concept for you, start HERE.] This week, the Diva challenged us to produce a composition leaving 60 to 70% of the tile surface blank.

Philadelphia's Magic Gardens by Isaiah Zagar

You know how sometimes when you live somewhere, you might have never visited places in your home town that most visitors (tourists) go. I’m sure there are a good number of New Yorkers who have never made it to the top of the Empire State Building nor to the Statue of Liberty. Here in my […]

[If Zentangle is a new concept for you, you can read about it here.] It is after Halloween, and we’re expecting a high of 75 degrees Fahrenheit (24 degrees Celsius) later this week which is kind of freaky for this part of the world in November.
