How to draw MOONPIE

Zentangle pattern: Moonpie. 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.Moonpie is a nature-inspired pattern from tangler Joan Delony of St. Augustine, Florida, and it’s her first on the site. Joan writes that she’s scheduled to become a CZT later this year.

She describes how her tangle pattern came about:

One day, walking on the beach, there were hundreds of these jellyfish washed up onto the shore. I found the inner pink markings were interesting. The jellyfish have four moons (gonads) in the center of their bell shape. The female moons are bright pink and the males are white. The females are fascinating to look at with their bright moons. They range in size from 10-16″ in diameter. Their tentacles are poisonous to marine life but not humans.

The moon jellyfish (Aurelia aurita) is also called “the moon jelly, moon jellyfish, common jellyfish, or saucer jelly”. This is an altered light photo of this interesting organism.

Joan illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Moonpie below and shows it in a completed Zentangle®.

    Bunny Wright – I love the name of this tangle. It’s also fun to draw. I think jellyfish are the most amazing creatures and you’ve done well to make a tangle using them as your inspiration!
