How to draw HARVEY

The unauthorized pinning, reproduction or distribution of this copyrighted work is illegal.Today’s fun Harvey tangle is from UK tangler Sarah Fowler, and as she says “There is a bit of a story attached to this fella…

So let’s get right to Sarah’s story:

Mid August myself and my family went to Texas to stay with my husband’s brother for a two week vacation.

Half way through the first week we started to get info. about a hurricane that was forming out in the ocean that was headed towards Texas….

So before it arrived we went for some retail therapy at a local mall and whilst sampling the delights of the Cheesecake Factory (needless to say we had no idea of what was to come…my brother in law said we would be getting ‘a bit of rain’…English understatement at its finest!) I noticed a rather interesting pattern on the end of one of the booths. So took a really bad photo of it and off we went.

Fast forward a few days and Hurricane Harvey arrived! So whilst being housebound for a few days I thought I’d start deconstructing the pattern and this is the result!

As is the nature of hurricanes their character and personality can change (Harvey turned into a tropical storm that included tornadoes!) and so this pattern can change.

So I’ve shown Harvey as a random pattern and as a ribbon-style. He can also be used singly and filled.

So this is my small way of paying tribute to all those people affected by the hurricanes that swept through and to their courage and resilience during a terrible time.

We certainly have had lots of hurricane memories these last couple of months starting with Harvey, then Irma, then Maria and Hurricane Ophelia that made landfall in Ireland on Monday as “the strongest eastern Atlantic hurricane on record … Parts of southern and central Scotland and northern England also may face a hazardous combination of tropical storm-force winds and heavy rain.”

As if anyone needed more proof of climate change.

When I first looked at Sarah’s free-form version of Harvey I immediately thought it was CZT Michele Beauchamp’s Blooming Butter and indeed it is similar. However Sarah’s Harvey has different fills and her ribbon-style version which I’ve used for my example is a nice orderly tangle that suits any OCD tendencies I may or may not have. And it is indeed fun to play with. With this version I found it important to follow Steps 4 and 5 in the orderly fashion Sarah shows. I got quite confused as to where those 3’s connect when I attempted to do them all in one step. But then I’m easily confused these days anyway.

Sarah illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Harvey below. The first set of steps shows the ribbon-style version with a colorful ZIA monotangle, the second is the free-form random version and Sarah has also included a colorful ZIA zendala to inspire exploration.
