How to draw JOBOWTIE

Zentangle pattern: Jobowtie. Image © Linda Farmer and TanglePatterns.com. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. You may use this image for your personal non-commercial reference only.

I already have my tree up, major accomplishment!

We start and end the “memorable” month of November with tangles from YuRu Chen.

Her new Jobowtie tangle makes me think of festive gift wrapping and I’m sure it could be applied decoratively to seasonal cards or gift tags or place cards you might be making.

YuRu writes, “The inspiration for this pattern is a cosmetic bag I made many years ago.” She was going through some old digital photos and came across this which prompted her to deconstruct the steps for drawing Jobowtie.

Although my Jobowtie example is in traditional Zentangle® black-and-white, as you see from YuRu’s cosmetic bag it lends itself to your colorful or glittery imagination too.

YuRu illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Jobowtie with a variation I love (Box 6) featuring the Zentangle-enhancer rounding, and a monotangle with yet another variation of her quilted bow-ties translated into a tangle. Lovely subtle shading examples both here and below in her second tile.
