Inktober 2020: Week 1 | Week 2 | Week 3 | Week 4 | Week 5 I’ve made it to the halfway point and a little past it. Woof! I also didn’t finish one of my ink drawing on the day I was supposed to and had to play catch Read More

Inktober 2020: Week 1 | Week 2 | Week 3 | Week 4 | Week 5 The first full week of Inktober has passed and I have already had a few moments where I rather resented that I had to draw today because I drew yesterday. On the other hand, Read More

Inktober 2020 – Week 1

October 5, 2020 Lisa 5

Inktober 2020: Week 1 | Week 2 | Week 3 | Week 4 | Week 5 I’ve been wanting to participate in Inktober for the past few years, but it always competes with my desire to paint as much Halloween nail art as possible. However, pandemics suck away my creative Read More

April 18, 2019 Lisa 0

Well, I have some nail art to post, but the collage hasn’t been released yet so I guess you’ll have to settle for some ZIAs. I’ve finished a little over half of the extra exercises from Beckah Krahula’s One Zentangle a Day that I committed to after Week 6 and Read More

One Zentangle a Day – Week 6

I thought I’d be talking about art supplies today, but the post was approaching 1.5K words and I hadn’t even started writing about the last week of drawings. And is it my last week? Because Krahula’s extra exercises leave plenty of room for more art-ing. I put together a list Read More

March 18, 2019 Lisa 2

Hello, again! I’d semi-planned to go through a list of all the tools I’ve been using for this week’s post, but I realized with one week left to go, that list could still change. So that along with my final thoughts will be in Week 6. Today we’ll talk a Read More

We’re at Week 4 of Beckah Krahula’s “One Zentangle a Day” and I haven’t fallen behind yet. But with several hobbies going at once, I’m not able to do many of the extra exercises in the book and that means no rainbows. The new colorful pens I mentioned last time? Read More

March 3, 2019 Lisa 0

I’m still slowly working my way through Beckah Krahula’s “One Zentangle a Day”, occasionally drawing the extra exercises when I have time. I’ve been through enough art courses that I don’t feel bad about skipping things, but I may revisit some of them when I’ve completed the full six weeks. Read More

One Zentangle a Day – Weeks 1 & 2

February 24, 2019 Lisa 0

As I mentioned at the start of the month, when I picked up Beckah Krahula’s “One Zentangle a Day” I really just wanted to copy the patterns out into my sketchbook after going through a Zendoodle book and doing the same. I’d gone through the bulk of the book as Read More
