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!

I will gently rise and I’ll softly call, “Goodnight and joy be with you all.”

Of all the money that e’re I had, I spent it in good company.
And of all the harm that e’re I’ve done, alas was done to none but me.
And all I’ve done for want of wit, to memory now I can’t recall.
So fill to me the parting glass.  Goodnight and joy be with you all.

Of all the comrades that e’re I had, they’re sorry for my going away.
And of all the sweethearts that e’re I had, they wish me one more day to stay.
But since it falls unto my lot that I should rise while you should not,
I will gently rise and I’ll softly call, “Goodnight and joy be with you all.”

New art journal!!  Thanks to my teacher discount at Michaels (there are financial perks yet!) I got a pretty nice one.  I was trying to badly for the first entry of the new year to be all yellow and optimistic and shit, but fuck it.  My current mood is pensive and the whole point of an art journal is to capture your state at that moment.
