I’ve recently started playing with Zentangles after a Facebook friend introduced me to this type of doodling art.  Technically, zentangles shouldn’t have any realistic shape or form, just patterns, but I find these to be more fun and can display a specific theme.  This one of a jockey on a horse I did for friends of ours that throw great Derby parties every year and have a Derby themed living room in their house.  This is the first one I’ve done with a theme, so I’m happy with how it turned out.  I hope to do many more to add to my collection! I’d like to play around some more with themed tangles and also try some in color.
