Presenting before you my latest Zentangle Inspired Typography for the word – Ikigai, with few progress pictures as well.
I have been reading a few articles on Ikigai lately, trying to understand the concept and how it can improve the quality of living. I found this wonderful article on medium – Ikigai The Japanese Secret to a long and happy life that explains Ikigai and how by following 10 simple steps, we can understand and follow our Ikigai.
Even though I have enough books in TBR list, I ended up buying some more as they were on sale. Hopefully, I will be able to clear out the list this year. That’s one major goal this year.
This is my first zentangle inspired typography of the year. I am looking for more short, beautiful and meaningful words to draw. If you have anything in mind, please do let me know. This time I drew some floral illustrations that come naturally to me, and along with that tried new zentangle patterns as well. I wanted to make a dense artwork with lots of details, but was kinda apprehensive that it might end up looking too cluttered. Tried to space them out as much as I could.
Check out the progress pictures. I don’t start from one end and finish on other. I randomly pick points and draw, so I am usually all over the place. It actually helps me to have a better idea of how the end product will look like.
Let me know what you think.
