Illustration Friday - Intricately Hooked

I am still hooked on these zents and decided, during a meeting today to keep drawing. I am absolutely finding that doodling helps my concentration in meetings - it's amazing.

Imitation of Mr. Piscasso

Then...I had some fun tonight with something that I have never done before. I took this black and white doodle and added color in photoshop. I know that you all can do this at will, but I was fairly pleased with myself.

Wow these are cool. Lots of art going on in those meetings. :)
some of them remind me of the 60ies and 70ies prints. How fun.

These are such fun I do love the color added...and thanks for saying we can do it too. LOL
I love learning new ways to have fun from my friends!

My blog roll says you have announced the winners of your wonderful book...but when I come here I get to this page but no further. ?????? Who was the lucky winner???? ;-) Inquiring minds wish to know.

Absolutely love intricate 1,2 & 3. Really delicate and beautiful on that paper.

yeah, blogroll shows us posts that aren't posted yet! Kind of a little teaser.

I'm in love with your brown paper zents Mim, but what made me smile is your signature, "Mim Picasso!"

My brother lovingly calls me Picasso.

I've never learned Photoshop or any other graphic program. I was an old hold-out but I'm SO ready for it now. Bring it on!!!

Good stuff Mimsy, good stuff.

I am in awe since I have photoshop and tried doing something similar and did not have the patience to learn how, very cool! (I also enjoyed your Picasso)
