How to draw KINETIC

Zentangle pattern: Kinetic. 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.Kinetic is a tangle pattern created by Ann Griffin. “I imagined electricity, or some other energetic force, firing up a grid system when I designed Kinetic”.

This is a flexible, fun pattern to draw especially when the caffeine kicks in and you “can’t draw a straight line”. It would also look great with circles, diamonds or triangles (did I leave anything out?) anchoring the grid system in place of the squares.

This is Ann’s first pattern on TanglePatterns.com and when asked if she’d like to share a little about herself with you she replied:

I live in Washington state, and I’m a stay at home wife, and also a mom to a wonderful thirteen-year-old young man with Cerebral Palsy. I also recently became a grandma again, so I’m also busy with craft and art projects for my baby grandson. I jump around from one art media to another as time and boredom dictate, but yarn and paper are my two favorite mediums. I hope to one day become a CZT, and until then I’m exploring as many tangle patterns as I can. I find infinite inspiration from the many talented and artistic “tanglers” out there who are kind enough to post their work and share their ideas – I hope they always keep the fun and beauty flowing!

I think we’ll all second that thought. Ann illustrates the steps for drawing her tangle pattern Kinetic below.
