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.

About Liz (AKA Cat)

I am an avid animal lover, photographer, graphic designer, and much more. I love to create art, and am willing to try any artistic technique at least once. I am particularly fond of artworks involving a lot of emotion and color. The purpose of my blog is for me to be open and honest with myself and the world about my attempts to grow as an artist. My other major passion is reading. My TBR pile is larger than I'll ever be able to read, and yet I can't resist adding to it on a nearly daily basis. I love to read science fiction & fantasy, graphic novels, and pretty much anything I can get my hands on. I have a couple of blogs, as you can see. One is primarily my photography, while the other are my book reviews. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out!
