I did this. Mostly just a fun exercise, but inspired by something wretched. I offer the following quotes from me on an earlier conversation I had…

"What are your thoughts on Zentangle?"
“The easiest way to describe it, is meditation through restrictive art.”
“I think it seems like a good idea, however, I feel that the ‘rules’ are too strict to really find it pleasurable.”
“Rules examples: drawn in a 3x3 square on white paper w/ black ink, materials to be of the highest quality, only a licensed Zentangle master may teach Zentangle.”
“Oh, and drawn intentionally and without distractions. If you break these rules your art is merely a doodle or zentangle inspired creation.”
“I get being proud of it as a piece of abstract art, but Zentangle strikes me as an attempt to make doodles highbrow and diminishes doodles as art.”

What I did is not a Zentangle. I did a piece of abstract art (a doodle if you will), on glow in the dark duct tape, affixed to an iPad Smart Cover, drawn in 4 different types of Sharpies. It is not 3x3. It was not expensive or high quality. I didn’t need special training to do it. It isn’t highbrow. In the end it’s as much abstract as it is concrete. And it’s all about me.

After not being available for several years, I decided to create this version of a Pathfinder Character Sheet based on the popular Ema’s Character Sheets that were available for a number of years until he was forced to take the site down by Wizards of the Coast.
