How to draw WACHO

Zentangle pattern: Wacho. 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.Long, long ago in the early days of TanglePatterns and my Zentangle® adventure, Livia Chua shared some great tangles many of which you can find here on TanglePatterns.

I was reviewing tangle history recently and revisited Livia’s flickr stream. Although she hasn’t been active on flickr for quite some time, I was enjoying all over again Livia’s wonderful sense of humor. For just about every tangle or ZIA she posted she wove a quirky, amusing story with it.

As more new tanglers emerged and contributed their tangles to this resource, a few of Livia’s tangles got “left behind” so today I’m featuring Wacho. And I’m happy to bring new focus on Livia and her imaginative inner world.

Livia writes,

I like triangles but find them too serious and pointy. So I added sooty petals (similar to the ones found in my Sooflowers pattern ) to soften them up and make them look more fun. ^_^“.

Simple curls from a triangle’s corner here and there help fill the white space around the Wacho elements. Livia advises that more “wings” (or sooty petals) can be added if your triangles are larger.

Livia illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Wacho here on her flickr photostream and she features Wacho here in a tile she calls “Crunchy” and explains her reasoning for its crunchiness. I’ve planned more Livia fandom for this week, stay tuned …

As you enjoy any of the tangles on the site, please do leave a comment of thanks and encouragement to show the artists you appreciate them for sharing their creativity to inspire yours.

  • Livia, I love your style!! I just wandered through your flickr photostream, smiling all the while! I recognized several tangles I’ve drawn and enjoyed. I’m left with several ideas for tiles I’d like to draw and send to my grandchildren … especially your owls – fabulous!!! Thanks for sharing your creativity. 🙂

  • Pia

  • Donna Lamoureux

    Livia, I love this tangle! The sense of fun and wanton abandon mirrors how I feel some days. It is the perfect filler for some strings. Thank You

  • Rebecca

    I love this pattern! I started a tile this weekend that I put down because I thought it was boring and this was just what I needed to make it fun and interesting. Can’t believe I missed this one before but I think it may be a new favorite!
