How to draw JAJAZZ

Zentangle pattern: JajazzOn Saturday North Carolina CZT Nancy Newlin shared String 104 with us and today’s she’s back with Jajazz. I think we were overdue for another grid-based tangle pattern.

The name Jajazz comes from a picture frame I saw at an exhibit titled ‘Japan and the Jazz Age’ which is a collection of items created during the time when Japan was enthralled with the jazz age in the U.S. The ‘Released From the Grid’ variation is a representation of the design element on the picture frame which I modified to make it work in a grid or a border. I think that this tangle might provide some real possibilities for drawing on the Renaissance tiles with all the color and shading options available.

For my example I reversed rows of Jajazz in sets and added a bit of shading along one axis of the grid lines.

Here Nancy demonstrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Jajazz. She also includes a drawing aid illustrating that the lines come from the center point of the previous line. She also shows a variation drawn with straight lines instead of the original curved ones and a “released from the grid” version of the motif.
