drawings, zentangle inspired, flowre doodle

Some of the ideas that I get for my drawings start out as pure admiration for other artists. I am a member of the Phoenix Art Museum and I try to go regularly, both to enjoy art, and to get inspired. But I don’t seek inspiration in museums only. On the contrary, I often find myself being inspired by my surroundings and by things I come across online.

“Underwater” is one of those drawings. I had recently discovered a print artist on etsy, and I loved her aesthetics so much that I tried to recreate one of her prints.

To create this drawing I used a variety of drawing supplies: gel pens, metallic sharpies, watercolor pencils, Prismacolor pencils, and Pigma Micron pens by Sakura on sketch paper.


I found this print by Yellena on Etsy, and I fell in love with the style immediately. It reminds me of the prints made by Liberty, which I love. The shapes, the colors, the composition… I just loved everything about this print and I will be purchasing Yellena’s art in the future for sure!

Now, I have no idea how to make prints, but I can draw. At first, I wanted to just recreate the print in one of my drawings, but as I was working on it, I found myself adding my own touches here and there.

Even though the drawing is VERY similar to the print, which was my original intention, it also has a little bit of BellaV in it.

Underwater drawings

I truly admire the artist that created the original print, I find her prints very inspiring and I am glad I came across her art. The main reason why Yellena’s prints are so appealing to me is because they remind me of underwater worlds with a touch of surrealism, which is a theme that seems to surface a lot in my original drawings, like this zentangle.
