Zen Coffee Note Cards

Project Description

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.

What you will need

  • paper
  • ink

These are Zentangles. Check out www.zentangle.com.
roycecreative answered:
Zentangles has been trademarked so I opted for zen doodle since I'm selling my cards on Etsy. You can also google zen doodle and get tons of hits.
