Customer reviews

By Eugenia Poh 04 Feb 2014 4

This book is quite thin, but it does contain some interesting tips.

If you're the kind that like to doodle around your textbooks and don't want to have so many different kind of drawing mediums, this book is one way to teach you how to make your letterings nicer, and also create simple borders with just a few simple strokes.

For me personally, I like the author's style of doodling / decorating, very simple and yet very attractive at the same time.

Review quote

'Zenspirations' by Joanne Fink is not technically a Zentangle book. But it is clearly inspired by Zentangle as she mentions in the beginning of the book. Her artwork and lettering use drawing techniques inspired by various tangles. She also adds color using a variety of Sakura products.
