I've interpreted this design a few times. Twice on the computer just fooling around with color, and then this one which I hand colored with my new Copic markers. Wow...they are really wonderful. My favorite marker is still Sharpie...but they just don't have the color range I need. I still love that super fine tip though. Anyway, these new markers are lovely, they are archival quality, come in a vast range of colors and values...it's the new way for me and JoDesigns!

Hello, and welcome to my website. My name is Jody Cooke and I am a designer living in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. I have been an artist in some form or another for over thirty years. My new passion is mandalas! Since I learned about them in January 2013, I have created over 1,500 (black and white) of these circular patterns and over 160 full color. Some are very small and sketchy, most are 8 inches in diameter, currently I am creating on 24" x 18" paper (transitioning into a Lotus Mandala series as of summer 2017) and one is a 24 inch square acrylic mandala painting on canvas. Definitely not my preferred medium..but I gave it a try!
