A full page tangle from my art journal that took a while to finish, but it turned out nice and was fun to do. It was a good piece for Inktober since I spent several days drawing it and practicing the repetitive triangular shapes and straight lines. It is very relaxing to do repetitive shapes and as usual I used Faber-Castell pens of various tip sizes.
A simple but pretty floral border drawn with Faber-Castell PITT Artist pen S, Faber-Castell Ecco Pigment 0.1 and colored in with a grey fine liner pen.
It’s October and this year I’m taking part in Inktober. I couldn’t do it last year because I was very busy at work, but this time around I’ll try to post at least a couple of pictures a week starting with this mandala done with the Faber-Castell Shades of Grey set of 6 brush pens.
Another geometric doodle pattern suitable for decorating bookmarks and cards. It’s easy to do and there are many options for coloring – just use your imagination.
An impromptu video I made by just setting up the camera and doodling without any preparation. For all my previous videos I planned the design in advance, but this turned out to be fun and in the future I’ll continue to make more of these videos. The pens I used: Faber-Castell PITT artist pen S and Uni Pin Fine Line 0.1.
Decided to make this intricate floral zentangle into a coloring page for everyone who likes to color pictures with numerous details. Of course, I tried it myself first and it turned out to be a really relaxing and fun experience. As you can see the result looks good. You can download the free coloring page in pdf format here. Have fun!

Step by step instructions how to draw a geometric tangle pattern and some variations. If you color it in you can get many different looks – here’s a video how to use color pens to make the third variation.
Starburst abstract doodle done with Staedtler Triplus Fineliner on card-stock. This pen is great for glossy papers – it leaves a really smooth mark and doesn’t feather or bleed. Click on the picture for a larger image.
An easy to do geometric doodle pattern. I think grid based patterns are very suitable for beginners – you just have to fill in the squares repeatedly with simple lines and you get interesting intricate shapes. And when you color them in you get lovely patterns. The black pen is Faber-Castell PITT artist pen size S and the color ones are United Office Fineliner pens: pink, dark green and light green. I plan on making a bookmark with this pattern and when it’s done I’ll post a picture.
