All drawings were done by me during a week’s time by using a B&W approach and black ballpoint pen. I was at Starbucks idly doodling away when a woman named Amy approached me out of the blue. She then explained she was an art therapist at UPMC and asked if I had been Zen Tangling all my life. Completely unaware of this type of drawing, I looked up the meaning behind Zen Tangles and was shocked to know I had been doing this on the side of notes for years, never realizing there was a (how I put it) name for what I do in my spare time.
Zen Tangling is an artistic method fun way to create beautiful images by drawing structured patterns and then repeating then over a small or large sheet of paper. Who knew tedious, mindless doodling was so relaxing and sortakinda famous? I certainly didn’t.
