How to draw MEO

Zentangle pattern: Meo. 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.The lovely ribbon-y looking tangle pattern, Meo, comes to us from 17-year-old Jonathan Baetens of “beautiful little Belgium”. This is Jonathan’s first pattern on the site.

Most of what I know about Belgium involves some of my favorite food groups – food, beer and chocolate – and in doing a little surfing to learn more I found my impressions confirmed.

“Gastronomy in Belgium is an art, an art de vivre. From street foods like frites or waffles with the toppings of your choice to traditional dishes like croquettes or mussels, the choices are endless. Brussels is bursting with cafés to go enjoy a world-renowned Belgian beer and the Grand Sablon Square is surrounded with shops from Belgium’s artisan chocolatiers. Wallonia, French-speaking Belgium, is a delight of local restaurants, affordable and charming inns, castles and small breweries throughout the rolling countryside.” From the Visit Belgium! site.

Enticing, right?

Jonathan writes, “I like to do a lot of stuff, i play the piano, i think that i’m going to take guitar lessons and i play theatre. I also love to draw … Lately I’ve been in to Zentangle, I really love it! … I adore your site, it’s so lovely to see all those great patterns all on one site! I visit tanglepatterns.com every day to check new patterns. … This pattern is very relaxing if you draw it. The repetitiveness of Meo works very meditative for me.”

I have to agree with Jonathan, Meo is a fun tangle and it requires total focus to get the curves going in the right direction to achieve the ribbon-like effect. And you know me, in my examples rarely does a tangle go unshaded.

Here is Jonathan’s illustration of the steps for drawing his Meo tangle pattern and two variations of it.
