Friday Favs: Jan 24, 2014 – Simon Beck

This week’s artist is one with a rather unusual back story, with simply amazing results. (Also perfect for sharing this week as my part of the country is completely covered in snow)

Simon Beck creates beautiful images in the snow by just walking the patterns. He began this as exercise as he is no longer able to go running, and the designs just starting flowing from there.

His work reminds me a lot of zentangle, but on a much larger scale!

There was a great entry on him over at My Modern Met or you can check him out over on his facebook page.

 

 

Zendala Challenge #87 and the Sun game

Here’s my take for the Bright Owl’s weekly Zendala challenge. Be sure to check out all the other zendalas while you are there!

I am also sharing another ZIA piece I did this week. This one was inspired by a game my daughter recently made us play. She calls it the Sun game. One person is the sun and stands in the middle. Everyone else are planets and have to ‘orbitate’ around the sun. The sun has to spin around and try to tag one of the planets, who then becomes the sun and you start again. She likes this because it is a “Make Me Dizzy!” game. 🙂

Friday Favs: Jan 10, 2014 – Journal52

This year I am taking a monthly themed approach to my favorite posts. January is all about art or artists.

To start things off, here is a great site/workshop I found when poking around on other zentangler’s blogs.

J52-intro-slide

Journal 52 is an online art journal workshop being offered by Chelle Stein. In the Journal 52 blog she provides a new prompt every week, as well as examples of her own page that week. Not just her finished page, but her thought process, the techniques she is using, ideas for materials. All around great stuff!

I am joining and plan to use this as a weekly project for me and my daughter, either with a joint journal or with each of us doing our own. I’ll be sure to share with you along the way.
