What was your inspiration?
While having my morning coffee i started doing a doodle of a coffee cup - then I wanted to do a set. I do all my doodling in the morning while I have my coffee and that is where the name "Zen Coffee" came from. After the coffee cups were done I started a set of fish cards.
What are you most proud of?
Taking the hand drawn doodles into the computer and converting them to vector art and producing quality digital art. I love blending traditional drawing with digital art. I used Illustrator to convert the drawings.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Just draw a simple outline of an object and fill in with either traditional zen doodle patterns or just make up your own. (I do both) You can also color these. I use water color pencils when I do color mine and it's beautiful. Give as an original drawing or scan and print.
