Good book for beginners
on May 31, 2013
I started tangling a few years back and I have not stopped since. I have all the Zentangle books and collected many patterns and works of art on Pinterest. I know that there is bickering about whether this is plagiarized or stealing from the original creators of "zentangle" but like anything else (Starbucks, Caribou, Dunkin Donuts, Gloria Jeans, etc.) new versions will be created. So is it stolen? No. This book is different from the others and I did not see any plagiarism in this book compared to the other books on zen-doodling, doodling, zentangling, zendalas, sketching, drawing how-to books, etc. But if you really want to get upset about it, then don't buy it.
This book offers: many colored pics, shading, mandalas, color wheels, texturing, using ideas from nature, fabrics, mixed media, enlarging, alphabet doodling, 3-D art, etc. There is a wide range of topics but nothing is covered in dept except maybe for the mandala section. If you just like to collect books on this kind of art or your a beginner, you should find something neat in this book.
