Inky Doodles

A couple of doodles. The second one is a series of triangles which took me a while to figure out. My lines are super shaky but it's great practice and, depending whether I go clockwise or counter-clockwise, totally unpredictable.

Pen and Ink and Color Pencils
I love Steampunk. It's a combination of science fiction, Victorian over the top feminine flourishes and the masculine Industrial Age of machines. There are as many different interpretations of Steampunk as the are artists.

My Sketchbook

Moleskine Sketchbook
This is a picture of my 3.5" x 5.5 " sketchbook. I'm having fun with the colored pencils but I did get carried away with the colors on the left drawing.

Pen, Ink and Watercolor

3.5" x 3.5" Pen, Ink and Watercolor pencil
I added more color to this one and space between each section. It's a little more airey which I like.

Pen and Ink on Moleskine

3.5" x 5.5" Pen & Ink 
I thought I'd add some color to this one. I wanted to keep it subtle so I used watercolor pencils which gives me control but still has that transparent wash look. I'm using Staedtler Karat Aquarell Watercolour Pencils which has a pretty nice selection of colors.

Pen and Ink

3.5x5.5 pen and ink drawing
I don't think I can call what I'm doing a zentangle. Zentangles are suppose to be spontaneous and shouldn't take more that 15 minutes to draw. With this one, I spent hours messing around with the negative and positive spaces and trying out different designs before drawing it with a pen. I still find it relaxing and I'm definitely in the Zen zone. I'm using a Moleskine 3.5 x 5.5 pocket sketchbook which I love because the paper is indestructible.

Structured Doodling

3.5" x 3.5" Ink & Pencil

Here's another "zentangle". It reminds me of a roller coaster.

Anyone ever hear of Zentangles? It's sort of like structured doodling. It's so portable, I use a 5.5" x 3.5" Moleskin pad and a Prismacolor fine line marker. I can draw anywhere - waiting for an appointment, during lunch at work, in bed or (and this is my favorite) early Sunday morning with a cup of coffee and some mellow music. It's very addictive.
