Wound Ribbon

Exciting new drawings are in the works, but for now, there is this little zen doodle. I saw something very similar on Pintrest and decided to give it a go. It’s not entirely perfect but there you have it.

The Simplicity of Black and White

Working with colors is something that I have historically been hesitant to do because black and white is so much easier. Its been really great to work on my own understanding of color choice and balancing hues for an overall compositional effect. One of my biggest problems in art school was using too many colors that did not share a unifying theme between them. It is almost impossible to get black and white wrong (not that I haven’t done that too). So, just to see how far I’ve progressed since I started doing this doodle project, I decided to make a traditional-style zen-ish doodle.

Tried out some new patterns and of course, added paisley.

Also, Kittens

Maybe one of these days I’ll take some inspiration from one of the adorable pets in my life. It has sure been fun having the kittens with us so we could marvel at their cuteness!

She's just so adorable. Why can't we keep all the kittens ever?!

Toe Beans. Nuff said.

They are getting so big! They barely fit on the window ledge.

Line Drawing With Marker In-Lines

To continue with more minimalististic doodles, here is this heavily patterned doodle. This is another church-inspired drawing. It was really quick to design and finish. It’s not something that I think can necessarily stand on its own, but it would make a sweet background or something like that.

This would be an excellent tattoo. Just sayin'.

I think this is a great example of the composition progression I’ve made, especially when compared with my earliest doodles. Go me! This was right after buying a new set of sharpies. There is nothing like getting new markers to make me want to doodle.

Wingaling: Doodle #2

After my first drawing, I am still excited to think of cool ways to doodle. My next drawing is a little more defined and less free form. It is asymmetrical taking inspirations from both feather and fire. I still have added significant nature details, but I am quite proud of my line quality and general composition.
