The Zentangle Method (ZM) is wonderful for helping bring calm to a busy mind. Sometimes though, you just want to express yourself artistically. In the Zentangle world, this kind of artwork is called Zentangle-inspired Art (ZiA). Here are a two tiles where I deviate from the ZM.
The first tile includes the tangle Squib, which is incredibly versatile when used as a string. Within Squib, is the tangle Paradox. The license I’ve taken is to shade the tile using Copic brand markers (sketching grays), rather than graphite. The second tile includes Flux, Zinger, Springkle and Cadent, and there is a light shadow painted on using watered down India ink.
I think my next set of tiles will be monotangles 🙂
