OZAD – Day 1

A friend sent me a Mastercard Gift Card and I thought that One Zentangle a Day, a wonderful book by Beckah Krahula would be a great way to spend it. OZAD is subtitled as A 6-Week Course in Creative Drawing for Relaxation, Inspiration, and Fun. Who doesn’t need that? Conveniently, it’s available on amazon.com so I cashed in my card (Thanks Chris!) and the book arrived in my mailbox sometime mid-February.  I’ve been enjoying it ever since.

I’m sure I’ve had OZAD for close to 5 weeks by now and I’m happy to say that I’ve managed to get through 11 days of lessons.

Too busy? Too slow? Really savouring each lesson? Whatever… I’m really enjoying it and I  encourage you to do the same. No, I do not know Beckah. No, I do not get royalties from her book sales. Do I find relaxation, inspiration and fun while following the lessons in the book? You bet. Do I think you should buy it? What do you think?

Too many questions? How about I post my Day 1 efforts?

ozad-1-1a I’ve never used Static before and found it a bit bland on this piece. Definitely takes a lot of attention to keep those lines parallel… and maybe less coffee.

ozad-1-1b Still not entirely sold on Static. I’m also noticing that my scanner wreaks havoc on the shading. Both of these were done with Sakura micron pens in a Pentalic journal.
