Choices. She realized, as her ship emerged from the gate that the choice was going to be almost impossible. Hard enough in a single universe, she now had a universe of universes to choose from! This is the first time that I’ve used Derwent Graphtint pencils on a Zentangle. I like they way they add greyed tones without overwhelming the design. Unfortunately, the silver of the ship’s structure doesn’t show up well in the image, but it’s really spectacular in person!

Angles. Apparently, I‘m being drawn to angles and straight lines as opposed to curves. It‘s interesting that I tend to fill those angles with softer, rounder patterns fairly often!

Walking weird. Today‘s tangle is brought to you by the letter “W”, for “weird”. The random tangles for this tile were a really eclectic mixture of wild, crazy, and fun. I actually love Caviar and Nekton. Even though I didn‘t think these would all work together, it turned out OK in the end. Zentangle drawn on Strathmore Bristol Vellum using a black Micron pen.

Spiders. Everytime I see this, I think there is a spider lurking about, waiting for her eggs to hatch. Zentangle drawn on Official Zentangle tile using a black, Micron pen. Tangles: Aah Afterglow Black Box Black-eyed Peas Centipede Hibred Huggins Munchin Poke-Root

A little gold. Sometimes, a little touch of gold can add a lot to a simple design. Here, I used a gold Pentel Slicci pen to add a bit of glitz to these Christmas ornaments.

Supermoon

Supermoon. Tonight‘s full moon will be the closest to earth since 1948. Take some time and go out an actually look at it in person. Think about how vast and amazing the universe is. I decided to draw this to experiment with some new tools for drawing on black backgrounds. I‘ve had this card stock for years. I bought a ream of it over 20 years ago, and at this point, I have no idea which company it came from.
