How to draw ME THREE

Zentangle pattern: Me ThreeThis unusual and somewhat challenging tangle, Me Three, comes to us from Portland jewelry designer and new tangler, Cindy Pope. Be sure to check out Cindy’s etsy shop for her “geeky, pop-culture, and genre-oriented jewelry“.

I love all the patterns that have a woven look and was trying to imitate the pattern on a ceramic tile with intertwined triangles with very little success and I came up with this pattern,” Cindy writes.

I am a survivor of a 25-year career in tax accounting and two children, now a jewelry designer who moved to Portland Oregon in 2005 from Chicago and discovered (or caught) the artistic fever that permeates our eclectic little city. Creative endeavors have always been my passion, taking disassociated parts to create a new and compelling whole—yes, even in tax returns. When given free reign of options in my new home, I fell in love with the jewelry arts. After playing around with beading and many other techniques, I stumbled upon metal clay and became instantly enamored of the medium. I loved the sheer possibilities metalclay offered and decided to learn some metal fabrication techniques to marry with my burgeoning silverclay (PMC) and base metal clay (Hadar’s clay) skills. I have built up a fairly successful business specializing in geeky, pop-culture, and genre-oriented jewelry and creating custom items for my often costuming customers. I discovered Zentangle through one of my very talented teachers, Wanaree Tanner, and discovered much to my amazement that I can actually draw (just not people). I hope to translate my tangling into a new line of jewelry pieces soon.

The challenging part of Me Three for me was visualizing, and executing, the circular shape to draw Step 1 without using a pencil guideline. As you know for a pattern to qualify as a tangle it must be simple enough to draw without penciled guides that are later erased.

Zentangle pattern: Me ThreeAfter several attempts, I figured out that if I visualize only half the circle first and get the first three strokes down well enough, then the rest of the circle becomes easier and not so lop-sided. I think this tangle also benefits from a larger scale than one of my early attempts shown here, complete with bumpy circles. However, this gives you some idea of how interesting an all-over pattern the basic motif creates. Focus, focus, focus!

Here are Cindy’s steps for drawing Me Three.
