I've gotten hooked on Zentangling, a relaxing no-holds-barred kind of doodling in black and white -- except I've also enjoyed putting color to the project. I feel very much like a kid again when I cherished my large box of Crayolas, sharp points, lined up just so, and God help the sibling who rounded the tips or snapped one (or more!) in two!
8.5"x11" on ivory
Medium: Pen/ink and Copic markers
With this folk-art inspired chicken that I drew, I used black ink and then used a wide assortment of Copic markers to color the beast.
I've been playing with my Copics a bit more lately, ever since I've signed up to attend the "basics" and "intermediate" classes in using them coming up in August in Lyndhurst, NJ. I'm aiming to be Copics-certified in the use of these markers -- for me, and maybe to (one day!) teach!
Come to think of it, I think John just gave title to this piece ... Whack-A-Doodle. And oddly enough, it's now sold!
