Artist Trading Card Daily – 112

July 30, 2015 — 13 Comments

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. Zen Doodle Artist Trading Card Daily - 112I 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!)Zen Doodle Artist Trading Card Daily - 112.2Anyway, 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.

    Hi John

    This must’ve taken ages! So detailed- hard to believe you did that on a tiny atc. It’s amazing :-)

    Great. I just love zentangle and it looks like a zentangle quilt. Thanks for the inspiration. X



    Love it John,and yes it looks as if the eye is looking at you. Jackie



    love this one, first glance it seemed to be a big eye xx



    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.

    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
