Author: Life Imitates Doodles Art, Reviews & Tutorials
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.

Odd thing for hubby’s lunchbag postcards, but I was really inspired to try and catch the light in a lava lamp so I went for it. I’ll set this one aside and keep it for one of those days when I’m sick or can’t get a card done for some reason.
There’s an old folk song ‘Little Boxes’, that talks about neighborhoods filled with houses made of ticky tacky, that all look just the same. This is another one of the tangle drawings I did while watching movies on New Year’s Eve and when I looked at the finished piece – ticky tacky is the name that came to mind!
Doodlewash prompt: Crayons – crayon translates to pencil in French, so I’m claiming this one fits the prompt!

One of the wonders of the Internet, photos of these real life little sea slugs that resemble sheep went viral last year. So, of course, I had to paint one. These guys are one of very non-plant critturs that can photosynthesize.
I’ll have a Fun & Easy step-out showing how to draw one coming up in the near future.
