Tangled in a New Story








I'm working on a new YA novel involving a new concept (actually an old one redesigned) called Zentangle. It involves drawing repetitive patterns on a small square of paper, using mostly pen and ink. I've been buying books for this for the last year or so and have become totally hooked on it. It is very meditative and relaxing. I went to my first class in Havelock, NC recently and loved it. I posted some other pictures on my crafting blog, Crafterdays. As you can see, I've started incorporating color with this. My plans are to continue to take classes, hopefully from several teachers, and to use it to illustrate some of my picture books. It's great by itself, but when combined with other art is really incredible.
