When you think of alphabetical characters, you probably think of writing or calligraphy, but the letters of the alphabet are simply line marks that we’ve assigned special meaning to.

If you ignore the meaning, and make a letter of the alphabet the motif – a string of the same letter clumped together – why then it becomes a pattern, and patterns make excellent texture!

Artist Ambassador for Zebra Pens. I'm a self-taught artist who dances about with all sorts of artistic mediums. My main loves are Watercolor, Zentangle and Ballpoint pen. The subjects of my work are many and varied and change at whim. I'm a little bit crazy, but doesn't that come with being an artist? At my Life Imitates Doodles Blog, I post a list of resource links for Tangles, Tutorials and Giveaways two times a week. I also write reviews, hold giveaways and share my art work.
