How to draw TAMI

Zentangle pattern: TamiTami is a very pretty tangle pattern based on a tattoo and deconstructed by Swiss CZT Hanny Waldburger. Hanny bravely overcame her fear of flying to attend CZT 14 in June, she is also a primary school teacher, adult educator and psychological counselor.

This is Hanny’s first tangle on the site and she’s one of three certified Zentangle® teachers in Switzerland, along with Tina Hunziker (Olten) and Diana von Kaenel (Gimel). Hanny is located in Zürich, the largest city in Switzerland.

Here are a few fascinating facts about Switzerland I collected from Wikipedia:

  • Switzerland is officially the Swiss Confederation from the Latin: Confoederatio Helvetica, hence its country abbreviation is CH
  • 2012 population estimate: 8 million
  • it has four official languages: German, French, Italian, and Romanish
  • total area: roughly 16,000 square miles. For comparison, the state of Maine is roughly double the size of Switzerland at 35,000 square miles.
  • it has the highest wealth per adult in the world according to Credit Suisse
  • it is the most expensive country in the world to live in
  • Swiss citizens have the second-highest life expectancy in the world
  • Zürich and Geneva have each been ranked among the top cities with the highest quality of life in the world
  • it is the birthplace of the Red Cross (oui, THAT Red Cross)

About her tangle Hanny writes,

I was inspired to by the tattoo of my hairdresser. 🙂 As her name is Tamara I named the tangle after her in the short form of the name: Tami. I got her into tangling as well, because she draws a lot in her free time. Now she tangles at each lunchbreak and was happy to hear that I named a tangle after her.  I think Tami is a nice pattern for borders.

I used a single ribbon-style or border for my example of Tami but it can also be drawn in rows adjacent to each other, alternating directions if you so desire, to make a pretty fill for a section of your Zentangle tile. If I might suggest, pay close attention to Tami’s Step 5. This stroke, for me at any rate, is where I found the rhythm to drawing Tami.

Hanny illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Tami here on her blog where she also shows several variations and ways to use Tami in your Zentangle art. My example comes from Hanny’s third tile where she demonstrates Tami along with the Zentangle-original tangles Echoism and Tripoli.
