I've really come to enjoy a zentangler's blog, "Tangle Tangle Tangle". Penny Raile's work is very bold and simple which is sometimes easier for beginning doodlers and zentanglers to follow and/or emulate until they develop their own style. Take a look . . . from simply beautiful to totally whimsical.
