Hopefully this blog will inspire you to have confidence in your creative abilities and give you courage to learn and try new things. Try something NEW. It could be just what you need to make you a better artist, or a better person. My latest obsession is Amigurumi Crochet, and my favorite subjects right now are Hollywood Icons, Famous People and Characters.

Artomat Vending machines for Art: Zen Doodles?

Remember cigarette machines?  Well, they have turned them into Art Dispensers.  There are over 100 around the country now and 400 artists are contributing.  So I just have to do this!

I have received my prototype kit from Artomat.org and am working on my sample to send them.  There is no real money to be made doing this, but it looks like fun and a great way to get more exposure as an artist.  Besides, I love a challenge, and making 50 of these at a time might be challenging.  I think I am going to do Zen Doodles (see sample) which I find very relaxing and fun to create.  If you want to know more about this fun art form, search for Zen Doodles, Zentangle, Zendala, etc.  Watch out because it is addictive.  The ones below are ATC size, but any size is acceptable.  It's a doodle, after all.


  1. Great designs. This kind of vending machine is unique. I have never seen anything like it. People would go so far just to make very interesting stuff. :)

  2. I love artomat. And I enjoyed doing 50 zen doodles for this particular series. Thanks, Rachel!
