XGK and UNI Zentangle Challenge

Quick post, been running behind on things all week. But (!) with this double post I’ll be ahead of things! Now that’s clever. Haha

First up XGK challenge

I’m so happy with this drawing. It was such a joy to draw and it turned out more or less as I had hoped. Love the little Kyoto flowers scattered over ‘Garlic Cloves’. And I think XOX gives that little bit of geometric contrast that I love.

I love the look of tangles like Undling and I’m really pleased that it kinda really worked for me this time. Had some fun with the color in there as well. To contrast I chose some darker and more geometric tangles (News) and a few flowery things just for fun.

Two quite different drawings, both in Black and white and color. But I really like them both. It’s the combo of the flowy/whimsical elements in combo with straight lines.

Thanks for looking!
