I came across a damaged Zentangle kit in a clearance bin at a Curry’s in late December. I was more interested in the pigment liner pens than anything else, but since the kit included the paper, I decided to experiment a bit with the style. The Zentangle Method itself is a copyrighted technique, always using 3.5″ X 3.5″ squares, but the essence is straightforward, and it is a good way to loosen up and just concentrate on repetitive patterns in drawing and not the final product itself. (A good primer on the technique can be found on wikiHow: http://www.wikihow.com/Make-a-Zentangle) Surprisingly, even something freestyle without much set up (e.g. a symmetrical template, ruler lines, compass, etc.) took over 90 minutes to produce the three drawings seen below.
