He's gonna drop by with a better tutorial, but here is a quick rundown:
You must produce arts using ONLY circles and circular selections of circles (parts of circles made by subracting other cirlces from them). That means you can only use the circular selection tool, as well. (this can also be spheres, for 3D)
To open it up for writing as well, I'm going to suggest a circular style of writing in the method of an improv game. I call the game "because" and the object is to use cause and effect to get back to the beginning.

Because I stayed up so late, I was late for the bus.
Because I was late for the bus, I had to run all over town to find a taxi.
Because I had to run all over town, I was very tired by the time I found one.
Because I was very tired, I ended up passing out in the taxi.
Because I passed out in the taxi, the driver splashed water on me to wake me up.
Because he splashed water on me, my suit was all wet!
Because my suit was all wet, my boss at the meeting was not very impressed.
Because my boss was not impressed, he gave me 3 extra assignments due tomorrow!
Because he gave me 3 extra assignments... I stayed up very late.
So you can see, the last statement, "I stayed up very late", leads back to the first statement "because I stayed up so late" It's a fun game.

Anyways, it can be done in three ways, with sphere objects only in 3d, with a compass on paper, or with the circle tool in an art program. In 3d, it has to be a perfect sphere at all times(no distortion). With the compass, it has to always be a curved line drawn by the compass. Since an art program version is oh so different, here's a few rules it has to have, the first and most important of which is that the only tools you use are the selection tools, the circle tool, and the paintcan.
For editing circles:
For moving(and selecting) circles:
For drawing circles:
and some examples of final products...
If this is too complicated, go ahead and use something else, but it's a very fun style.
