How to draw FLUKES

Zentangle pattern: Flukes. Image © Linda Farmer and TanglePatterns.com. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. You may use this image for your personal non-commercial reference only. The unauthorized pinning, reproduction or distribution of this copyrighted work is illegal.Flukes is among the 102 Zentangle®-original tangles CZTs learn in their certification class. It appears in Suzanne McNeill’s first book Zentangle Basics, and is identified as a Zentangle®-original there.

Suzanne illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Flukes here. UPDATE: Early in the Summer of 2014 Suzanne McNeill’s blog was removed and all the posts and images were lost, so this link no longer works. In her original illustration, Suzanne had inexplicably renamed it Corner Box but in later booklets where it appears again she corrected the tangle’s name and gave it the correct attribution as a Zentangle-original tangle.

However the artist and TanglePatterns.com reserve all rights to these images and they should not be pinned, reproduced or republished. Thank you for respecting these rights.

If you curve the lines and the corner “box”, you get a variation of Flukes that’s the official pattern Beelight. Check the instructions for drawing Beelight if you need more help with Flukes.

    Oh this is fantastic! Thanks for sending it to me. I have been doing “zens” and these doodles longer than I can remember. If there is a Tangle group I want to join it? Thank you. Jan

      Janice, there is a flickr Zentangle group that’s free to join and I believe it was originally started by Zentangle originators Rick Roberts and Maria Thomas although it is not moderated: http://www.flickr.com/groups/zentangle/pool/. However now that so many people have joined it recently most of the illustrations posted there are tangle doodles, not Zentangles per se. I’ve written about the difference between the two on this page where I describe Zentangles: http://tanglepatterns.com/zentangles. Regardless of whether you actually Zentangle, or draw tangle doodles it’s a wonderful addiction. Delighted to have you among my readers! Thanks.
