This is a small, white, real pumpkin that I tangled on during October 2010. It wasn’t easy to do because the squash was heavily coated in some kind of wax. I used Pigma Micron pens, but they tended to stay wet a long time. Also, the ink tended to bead up in spots so that when it dried, there were darker circles.

Creatures. As the ship floated just above the surface, she stared out the window at the myriad of creatures. She thought, “The Universe has a bizarre sense of humor!” Zentangle drawn on Strathmore Vellum Bristol using a black, Micron pen. Shading done with graphite pencil.

Silliness. Every once in a while, I think my brain falls into some kind of alternate reality of silliness. I wasn‘t sure how I was going to tie all the different random tangles into the string I chose. So I just started drawing with the Btl-Joos… and things kind of evolved from there. The end result was weird but fun! Zentangle drawn on Official Zentangle tile using a black, Micron pen.
