How to draw TWILE (STOIC)

The unauthorized pinning, reproduction or distribution of this copyrighted work is illegal.Last summer my fellow CZT#7 classmate, Lesley Scott-Gilliland of Muncie, Indiana, sent me her tangle pattern Twile for consideration. I immediately recognized it as the as-yet unpublished Zentangle®-original tangle Stoic.

Waaaaay back when — 3 years ago in March 2010, even before TanglePatterns was “born” — Rick and Maria were in Stowe, Vermont and saw a doormat with a design they named Stoic. Although they illustrated a Zentangle® with the pattern and posted a photo of the doormat here, they didn’t publish steps for it.

Rick writes, “This is another of many patterns that begins with a grid. It’s neat because it looks woven without trying to weave it which we don’t do in Zentangle – too much left brain work for that.

Then well over a year later, along comes Lesley’s Twile  — she had unknowingly deconstructed Stoic.

Here’s another version, sans shading.

So here you go, here is her first tangle on the site and Lesley’s step-by-step instructions for drawing Twile, and two lovely monotangle Zentangles featuring the tangle. Lesley also gives a shading tip for you.

"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

  • Well done; it’s a nice pattern. I haven’t used it for a while. Thanks for the brain-jog! But I think we should continue to call it Stoic.

  • Wow! That’s so strange! When I was first interested in Zentangle I deconstructed a Danish Christmas paper star ‘Lav Stern’that a friend showed me how to make many years ago. I had a challenging time drawing it. It turned out well but I have never tried it since. This is a much easier way to do it and I look forward to trying it again. Many thanks!

  • Lynda Agen

    Love this one! Thanks!!!

  • Susan Myers

    Are there any patterns on our site from someone in the Dallas/Fort Worth area?

  • Peggie Schurch

    Hi, Interesting pattern, easy to draw. Hard to decide which name to give it, what about TWOIC. Many thanks Peggie Schurch

  • Beth S

    Love how simple you made this to do! Thanks so much! I can see using this one a lot!

  • Sandy Hunter

    I’m in the Dallas area :o)

  • sybil

    Twile is hard for me. I can only do it if I have a ruler and mark 1/2″ apart, it comes out looking okay. But without a ruler, it looks like s&%t. Will I ever get to the place were I won’t need a ruler?

  • Lori Kingston

    This is so pretty! And Linda, I think I like your variation, with the heavy lines and white centers, the best of all. Beautiful!!

  • Chris S

    I only started this addictive art form a few weeks ago so I’m very new to it. When I saw this pattern I had to try it. It looked nothing like the samples – until I shaded it and it was totally transformed!

    Thank you Linda for all you do. Your site is one I visit almost daily. 🙂
