Illustrated Poem #001

  Since this is the first drawing of this series, let me explain how the idea of the series came to be... I really like inspirational poems, and I also wanted a way for people to connect more to my zentangle drawings. I thought that if I used particular poems as my inspiration to my zentangle drawings, that people might be able to appreciate and understand the meaning behind my drawings more.

  Thus began my "Illustrated Poem Series".

  With each new drawing I want to create, I find a poem that I like or find inspirational and base my drawing on it. This is #001.

The poem that inspired it is as follows:

  "What matters is to live in the present, live now, for every moment is now. It is your thoughts and acts of the moment that create your future. The outline of your future path already exists, for you have created its pattern by your path."

-Sai Baba

  What I imagined was that the circles were representations of your possible futures, and each of the patterns surrounding them were representations of your choices and actions in life. The bigger circle has a very faint yellow glow which stands for the brightness of your future.

  There were some hiccup to this drawing, but I managed to fix them and I'm really pleased with how it turned out. #002 is going to be a mandala with a whole lot of pointillism. I'm very excited for this series and can't wait for you guys to see the second piece once it's finished.
