I was always fascinated by Zen Art, actually. When I first saw the books at Kinokuniya bookstore on Zen Doodling, I flipped through the pages and looked at them with awe. I thought I can never do this. This is an old art that resurface from time to time, but it suddenly spark an interest lately. My sister mentioned to me about Kraft+ August challenge that require us to create Zen doodling. As always, I armed myself with a thousand excuses but before I could say them out loud, she simply said "Do it". Hmmm......
Well, it's either I give it a try or I simply ignore it. I decided to give it a try. Once started, I just got hooked and couldn't stop. At least, I now have another background to create.
