Following on from yesterday’s post about doodling on the Artist Trading Cards here is the second one that I promised you – a little trippy this time with concentric lines and a little space scene in the middle.
Lots of work went into this one. I started out by using a CD ROM to draw the curved lines with a pencil and then inked over these with a Pigma Micron pen.
Unsure of what to doodle in the spaces I decided to just go for it and start in the middle and see what happens.
The “moon” and satellite scene evolved from some pointillism in the central circle and then a couple of random intersecting lines – it’s interesting where my imagination takes me!
I decided to treat the outer area a bit like a log cabin quilt and to mirrror the designs that I was using where possible so that it looked as if I was peering through an aperture (with some fancy shutters!)Anyway, a long time later (not in a galaxy far, far away) I ended up with what you see above – weird and trippy or what?!
There is still one more to show you in this doodle series so please do visit again tomorrow if you can.

What a beautiful work of heart!
Looks like the [incredibly artistic] eye of someone who’s had a little too much liquid of the boozy kind the night before. lol.

Looks like an eye! Still fascinated with your “doodles” in the folds. Thanks for taking the time to make all these and sharing. Great inspiration!
Love it, John. xx
Looks Great. Done quite a lot of this but must do some more.
You are so talented – hope by reading your posts something will rub off. Really like the monochrome doodles! Look forward to the next one.
So clever! Love all your patterns.
Bought Zentangle books and pens recently, you’ve inspired me to have a go. Thanks John
Amazing job John! It looks GREAT! x
