I received a copy of Zentangle Dingbatz through NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.
Zentangle Dingbatz by Brian Crimmons Czt is a fun new way of looking at Zentangle art. What’s Zentangle? Zentangle is the art of creating complex yet structured patterns. It earned its name thanks to the calm it brings for artists, and thus is a widely loved method of relaxing and creating artwork.
This book isn’t simply full of Zentangle patterns however (though there is some of that). Instead, this book is a guide on alternative ways of creating and using Zentangles. What I especially love about this book is that it gives a detailed explanation on how to do several different designs, while giving the foundation to go out there and create your own.
Zentangle Dingbatz contains several chapters’ worth of tutorials, and they go into a shocking amount of detail. Not just about the design itself, but about the materials and stationary used as well. It’s extremely impressive.
The last thing covered in Zentangle Dingbatz is a gallery of completed artwork. I always love these sections, as they’re highly motivating. Its fun to see what can be done, once you’ve mastered any one art style.
