I've done four since last night when I saw this!  I am trying to scan them right now so I can post 'em here but everything technological in my house is being beyond frustrating right now.  Ugh.  Anyway, thanks for the new addiction!!   Grin

I love them all, but if I had to pick a favorite it would be the third one, although I'm also crazy about the first one. Each one is incredibly beautiful though. I've always been crazy about black and white drawings, so I think you should stick to that too (Although I can understand the desire to color them!).

I have the same sort of tendencies with "cyclical activities", lol... except a year is too long for me to stick with any one craft or artform. I think your drawings are awesome and that maybe you should stick to it... You know, in BETWEEN your other interests. Drawing (for me) is great because I can create without creating a gigantic mess around me. I especially enjoyed how you went outside of "the box" (slash circle, haha) with the sketches. It adds interest to the perimeter of the sketch, IMHO. The "ink balance" was also nice... What I mean is, you spread the heavy shading and the light sketching out pretty well and it added a sort ove evenness to something that is otherwise totally random. All in al, GREAT Zentangles!

I LOVE your drawings!
I really like the fact that there is free space around the border and the pictures aren't all blocked in by their shape. If that makes any sense Wink
I also like the black and white contrast. It makes them very elegant.
very nice work!

I, too, am a cyclical artist/craftster. I'm in my knitting phase at the moment  Wink

These are very beautiful. I really love that you allow the work to move outside the prescribed borders a bit. It speaks to me. I read an article in the Dec. issue of Cloth, Paper, Scissors. I've put it on my list of things to try this year. I even have the sketchbook all ready to go!

I hope you keep at it and post some more of these to share!

these are beautiful
I make drawings similar to these, but I use up the entire page of my sketchbook, and fill in each space with a different pattern. i also use color sometimes.

also, I LOVE your spiderwebs! they are the prettiest ones I have seen and if you don't mind, I might adopt your style!

Ha, that's fine by me! Spiderwebs are one of those things that I can never draw right, so I've decided to embrace the fact that mine always end up looking vaguely like patched stained glass.

i think the beauty of spider webs is that there is no right way, since all spiders have a different way of making their webs!
I just happen to really like stained glass, too and adding hat, the webs look more natural, as if they're no longer pristine
