ZenDoodle Workshop

This summer really zapped me!  Dealing with influenza then pneumonia had me down so far I didn't even realize I missed posting that I had 2- yes TWO articles in the new magazine by Cloth Paper Scissors, called Zen Doodle Workshop.  It's such a fun magazine all about taking your doodles off canvas!

I love working with the wonderful team at Cloth Paper Scissors, and was thrilled to get to do it again!

I was excited to challenge myself to find ways to really push myself out of the sketchbook!   Both a jewelry project and an apron project were the end result.   More great news!  The magazine was such a hit that I just finished ANOTHER article for the next issue due out this winter-(coming sooner than any of us want to admit!)

Here is a peek of the apron in progress-
And here is a sneak peek at the necklaces in progress!

Do yall know about InkTober? t’s a 31 day challenge in October to inspire you to do one ink drawing a day and share it on social media.

 Inktober was started by Jake Parker in 2009 as a way to improve his own drawing skills and habits, and tons of artists now take on the challenge each year. Here’s a link to Jake’s site to learn more:

Just thought I would show you my sketches so far... I have also been reading about the Tudors this month- so these are my interpretations of my own royals.
