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.
