How to draw BUGLES

Zentangle pattern: BuglesBugles is a pattern from Canadian tangler Joyce Evans and it’s her first on the site. Bugles is one of those “happy accidents” arising when a new tangle is created from a miscue with an old one.

Joyce writes that she was “trying to tangle Hugs and Kisses and ended up making up this pattern.” She named the new pattern Bugles because it reminded her of the corn chip snack food ‘Bugles’.

“I have lived on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada all my life. I am retired so have the freedom to devote lots of time to tangling. In June 2011 a friend introduced me and another friend to Zentangle®. We got together regularly for lunch and ‘show and tell’ and to set ourselves challenges. I started doing the DIVA Challenges and learning the patterns from tanglepatterns.com. I started buying books and art supplies like pens, pencil crayons, papers, frames, sketch books, etc. etc. Now my dining room table is covered with ‘Zentangle stuff’.”

In my first couple of attempts at Bugles I made the mistake of not allowing enough space between the columns of shapes in step 1 and when step 3 came along: “oops” — no room. Here’s another little tip for you — to help me get the shapes in step 1 nicely formed, I colored them in as part of the first step — black jelly beans. Another yummy snack food.

Here are Joyce’s step-by-step instructions for drawing Bugles and a completed Zentangle® featuring her tangle pattern.
