How to draw JAMBALEE

Zentangle pattern: Jambalee. 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.This is another “first pattern” on TanglePatterns. Jambalee is the creation of Pam Pincha-Wagener, known as ppinchawagener on flickr.

When a Zentangle pattern doesn’t require as much concentration to draw as some of the other more complex patterns, I often find I really have to stop myself from rushing to make the strokes.

Jambalee is a good example. Those little guys all seem to be having so much fun dancing around the page, it’s hard not to rush to add to the party. If you find this happens to you too, take a deep breath and remind yourself to focus on the moment, that each stroke is deliberate: draw them “one stroke at a time®”.

Pam shares this background about herself:

Pam is from the Seattle area – an area very rich with all sorts of creative types – with the requisite two cats. A jack-of-all-trades, she’s worked as a geologist, illustrator, store manager, archeologist’s registrar in Israel and the Crimean peninsula. According to parental lore she’s been drawing since she was four years old and loves arts and crafts in all forms. She works as a computer analyst for Boeing to pay for all her artistic endeavors. Current passions include Celtic Knotwork, painting Russian style icons, crazy quilt embroidery, photography, bottle cap pincushions and of course tangling whenever she gets a chance!

She shows how to draw Jambalee here. If you look around her postings on flickr, you’ll find some very good directions for drawing some Celtic Knotwork too.
