Zenny Snowman-Example art

Zenny Snowman
Originally uploaded by Focus_

You wouldn't look at this and say zentangle, but it is zentangle-integrated. Marta Myska has used the tangles 'Keeko', 'Wadical', 'Striping', and my pattern 'Lacy' to create a fantastic, whimiscal snowman.

Patterns are everywhere. Zentangles reduce the world to abstract pattern, but tangles can also be used to create a very realistic drawing.
More of Marta's work can be found at her Flickr site.


  1. Wow Sandra! That is so cool! She did a great job! I want this for next years Christmas card! I need to do some "googling" of zentangle as I don't really know much about it at all! It sounds like such an interesting art form and I certainly love the work you are doing in the medium!

  2. Thank you!

    My work is more zendoodle than zentangle, though I use the zentangle method. I have a post with links that explain what a zentangle is: http://lifeimitatesdoodles.blogspot.com/2010/01/what-is-zentangle-how-does-it-differ.html
    I'd love to see what you do with the form!

  3. This is so cool !! Thanks Sandra for all that you are doing here ! Please chack out my blogspot when you get time. I jut started it last night so not much but a story there so far !
