Zentangle

This sample cover for Le Cool online magazine is another experiment inspired by the strange and beautiful art of Zentangle. It is very relaxing, fun way to create images by drawing structured patterns. (And it’s much more productive than playing those bubble-gem-crashing games). After learning the basics, which don’t really require any artistic skills, you can make the patterns more sophisticated and 3D-looking; and later experiment on creating your own patterns. Some of my favourite artists and illustrators like Harry Clarke and Aubrey Berdsley used repetitive patterns in their drawings.
