Zentangle, Zentangle, and more Zentangle

I have been looking for a teaching job this summer, so I have been working on lesson plans. I decided to put together several Zentangle lessons, since I enjoy doing them so much. Following are the samples I did up to go along with each lesson.

This first one was to create a unique shape to hold the tangles.

This next one was to find an art history image that would be easily recognized and draw tangles in the negative space.

This last one was a Mandala project.

Random Works

I have been doing quite a bit of drawing as of late. I thought it would be a good idea to actually post them.

This one was done with a cheap ink pen and some colored pencils. This is one of my favorites, and was a lot of fun to do.

A random abstract drawing using the same cheap ink pen and some green pen for color. Again, very fun to do. I find these very relaxing to draw.

Another random abstract with patterns.

Another random abstract drawing.

I got another pen and finished this one (from an earlier post).

This time with pen and colored pencil.

Abstract Gel Pen Drawing

I've been taking my sketchbook with me when I am subbing and it has proven very helpful in allowing me time to actual create some art. I finished this one a couple of days ago. I'm not sure how much I like the end results of these, but I find it very therapeutic.

Cells - Ink Pen

This was done with an ink pen, which ran out before I finished it. I guess this will have to be called "done". The ghost image in the white area is the next page in my sketchbook showing through, it's not part of this drawing.
