BOOK #2: Zentangle: 15 Easy and Inspirational Steps to Make Art Using Zentangle Methods

In the 7th Century sage Hui Neng said that “the meaning of life is to see”. Zentangle is a meditative technique whereby the user creates abstract artwork while trying to reach a spiritual level. Most meditation processes require you to close your eyes whereas Zentangle requires them to be open while you focus your energy and intent. Meditation has been shown to have amazing benefits for both the body and the mind, however many of us simply can’t shut off when we try and spend time de-stressing.

Zentangle is a process of creative meditation where instead of simply sitting and trying to relax you force your brain to focus on nothing outside of the piece of artwork you are creating. Zentangle allows you to meditate but also actively work at a task by focusing your mind and allowing everything else to fall away without giving you the chance to think about other things.

Zentangle isn’t doodling, a common misconception,it is drawing with a focus and purpose while letting your mind wander. If you’ve never heard of it this book will be a great introduction and if you have then you can still learn how much more there is to the process than you know about.

Here you can learn:

  • What is Zentangle?
  • Meditation and Zentangle
  • Steps to create your own Zentangles
  • Benefits of Zentangle
  • What others say about Zentangle

by Diane Griffiths

Get Smart Photography

The idea of this series is to take you through the steps you require to understand your camera and how to take amazing photos. There are three books in this series:

1) Essential Equipment. Covering Digital SLR camera equipment; the basics of camera functions, accessories and essential upgrades in order to help you to decide what to buy.

2) Get off AUTO. Use what you do own to the best of it’s capability. Discover the technical functions of your camera; shutter, aperture, ISO, exposure, white balance, histogram and how they all fit together.

3) COMING SOON. Get Creative. Now it’s time to really take your photography to the next level. You have the equipment you need and the basic technical skills in order to use it properly, you’re now prepped to get creative and experiment with your photography. We’ll cover different subjects and techniques as well as suggesting potential projects that you can get in to in order to practice and develop your skills.

So get smart and start building your photography equipment and pushing both you and it to the max in order to take photos like a champion.

Smart Photography – Get off AUTO

Discover the technical functions of your camera; shutter, aperture, ISO, exposure, white balance, histogram and how they all fit together.

In order to really allow yourself to really get creative with your camera, you first have to get technical.

Fact.

Otherwise you’re just leaving down to plain luck, every time. Putting your camera on auto and hoping it will interpret the scene correctly isn’t the best approach.

So what is correct? A lot of people talk about the ‘correct’ exposure; they talk about histograms, depth of field, shutter speed, aperture, white balance and ISO but what does it all mean?

This no-nonsense guide takes you through the basic technical concepts in order for you to know your way around your camera. Clear up common misconceptions and understand how you can set up your camera in order to capture the best of your subjects.

I have read many, many books on this subject and I can safely say that not one of the books I read gave me all of the information that I’m about to give you in the following text. I had to take each learning and slowly piece it together; it took me a long time to build up a picture of how the camera settings work and gain confidence in order to be able to manually adjust the settings for myself in order to get the images I wanted. I don’t get too technical here – I only cover what you actually need to know in order to get shooting.

Covered in this book:

Shutter

Aperture

Exposure Value

Creative Modes

ISO

The Exposure Triangle

Depth of field

Hyperfocal Focusing

White Balance

Histograms

The previous book the Get Smart Photography series.

The Drawing Beneath My Kayak: Artist’s Portfolio & Short Essays

by Chris Hammond

Artist/designer, Chris Hammond, connects with nature by using a kayak to get in close to his shallow water subjects. In this artist’s book, Chris presents a small portfolio of sketches, drawings, and digital printmaking that represents a unique interpretation of the waterway landscape – below the surface. Working from a platform kayak, he uses an underwater viewing tube to view the river bed and sketch nature scenes and aquascapes. Later on, in his digital printmaking studio, Chris draws on his fieldwork as a starting point for further exploration of aquascape images as digital art. The book includes illustrations to show innovative features, seating arrangements, and special equipment on board the kayak that enhance the creative experience. Other illustrations show the artist using his view tube. In a few of his short essays, the artist comments on the importance of curiosity and other topics related to the creative process. Also, Chris shares his perspective on why the river, the kayak, and art blend in such an inspiring fashion.

The Lost War: A World Without Shakespeare (An Interrupted Tapestry Book 1)

by Cheryl Wolder

“O for a Muse of fire!”

A most unusual story.

A look at Earth’s troubled future through the eyes of Bartholomew Lewis and his fellow British actors, a most companionable lot.

No longer young, they are disenfranchised by a war that tore civilization apart 25 years ago, waged by a mysterious unknown enemy. Now, in exchange for food and shelter, they serve as conscripts to the British government, a sparse network of soldiers and officials whose only means of communication is by using the theatrically-inclined as mailmen. Their only means of transportation – bicycles. And in these desperate times, danger is everywhere.

Without their art, the actors struggle for identity and purpose, and the world they live in seems mired in hopelessness. With resources scarce, the arts and their practitioners have been delegated to the darkness.

Far from being a sad tale, THE LOST WAR is a tale of resilience, friendship, and humor as well as one of healing. But all is not lost. The actors find through their adventures that they might be able to reignite their souls and civilization’s hope with theatre. Can the world be saved by Shakespeare?

Loves lost and mourned; dreams scorned and abandoned; hopes dashed and mislaid – this serialized novel weaves the tapestry of the past and present using our humble players to restore hope and rebuild themselves and the world. Follow Bartholomew Lewis and his friends on their journeys of rediscovering that there should never be a world without Shakespeare.

Recommended for adults and older teens. For all who love the arts.
