I've recieved quite a few inquiries about how I did it. Well, never fear, the quick and dirty tutorial is here.
I'm really sucky at explaining things (seriously, don't ever ask me for directions) and generally the only thing that comes out of my mouth is "uh... uhm...uh..." So instead of mumbling you to death, Me and my good friend paint made a humorously 3rd grade looking tutorial. But somehow it works.
First off, you'll need a blank canvas or three (or how ever many you want), a pencil with an eraser, measuring tape, paint (I used cheapo 69 cent acrylic), and a 1" foam brush. Oh, and a pretty steady hand. You can use painters tape if you want (or if you have shakey hands) but I freakin hate painters tape. It always bleeds. I don't know if its just me and I'm doing something wrong, but I don't trust it. Anywho, here we go!
This is your canvas.
This is your canvas on drugs.
On a blank canvas, measure and lightly mark 4 equidistant columns and 6 equidistant rows. For example, if your canvas was 20x30, you would have 4 5" columns, and 6 5" rows. Make sure someone is watching as you do this, because not only are you making art, but this shit is geometry too! Look at you, smart, creative, and pretty, can I get yo' number?
Once you're done showing off... I mean, making your rows and columns, with a straight edge, lightly connect the corners in each row with a pencil. You shouldn't have to erase these lines, as you'll be going right over them with paint.
With a 1" foam brush (foam is best, no possibility of stray brush hairs screwing you up), paint every other zig zag line. Once dry, apply a second coat if you so choose. It's not necessary, but it gives a better finish.
After your second coat is dry, go in and erase your measurment lines. Now hang your canvas on the wall, admire your handy work, and repeat after me "Well, look at me, smart, creative, and pretty!"
