How to draw COIL

Zentangle pattern: Coil. 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 tangle pattern named Coil was created by soon-to-be CZT® Sue Jacobs of Chicago.

Sue tells us,

I’ve only been doing Zentangles (and Zentangle inspired art) since last summer but have found them addictive.

I’ve been a decorative painter for many years and love having new ways to grow.

While I am not a CZT – I plan to be soon – I’m attending the seminar in February. Then I hope to teach in the Chicago area.

Sue illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing her tangle pattern Coil here. Sue recently started a new blog here, so if you’re in the Chicago area keep an eye out for her workshops in a month or two.

Update: March 6, 2011 – Sue Jacobs has posted a video demonstrating how to draw Coil.

Guest tangler: Mariët Lustenhouwer

Mariët Lustenhouwer from Dronten in The Netherlands used Sue’s Coil tangle pattern in this cool Zentangle she posted in her flickr photostream. Check it out for more of her lovely art including some amazing pencil sketches.

"Absolutely the best Zentangle Book yet! As an accomplished artist I used to think I did not need instruction on this art form. How wrong I was! My tangling improved by leaps and bounds after reading this book. If you think you have Zentangle down then you need this book more than ever!" ~ Kris H
