Pen & Ink

sometimes we come last, but we did our best.

Medium: Pen & ink (Staedtler fineliner pens).

I have a very distinct memory of starting this over Christmas break while watching a new show (Reign – a terribly written and immature version of the Tudors yet somehow simultaneously addicting).  Which means it took me about 3 months to do.  As far as art projects go, that’s very speedy for me.  I need to slow it down and take it easy.



Starting a few new projects.  Hamsa hand drawing, mural on pantry door, and patchwork curtains.  I don’t really  sew, so we’ll see how that goes lol.  The wall decals on pantry door will be relocated – not part of the mural.

Funny enough, my friend’s original art piece she commissioned turned up in the mail, so now I have an extra one of these lying around.  I love drawing zentangles, but it’s not exactly something I want to hang on my walls lol, so dunno what to do with it.

try #2

First commission got lost in the mail, so here’s try #2.  Painful lesson I guess in not being a cheap ass and always insuring your shit when you mail it.  Super stressed about misc things anyway though so it was good timing to be forced to zentangle, even if it’s done out of anger.  

tangle of zen.

A posted some random doodles on Facebook and joked that it was for sale but that I only accepted the currency of champagne.  (Seriously, Spring Break, hurry up and get here!!) and someone actually wanted to buy it.  So I went ahead and did another one on nice paper because I’m a professional like that.

After 4 hours…

Almost done.  I don’t keep track of time really when drawing, but I watched 4-5 movies while doing this lol.

Out of my mind.

Anxiety is all over the place right now, so I’m back to mindless doodling.  Posted this on Facebook and jokingly said it was for sale (in the currency form of champagne – lent’s almost over yo) and I think someone actually bought it.  I’m over the moon.  Artist’s egos are so easily stroked.  >_<  I’m always astonished when someone wants to spend hard earned money on my art – especially stuff like this.  Anyone can doodle!  But I’m back in school and have a tuition bill to pay off, so I’m not looking a gift horse in the mouth!
