How to draw JESTER

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

Today we’re having fun with her Jester tangle, the second so-named on the site. Cyndi Knapp’s Jester can be found here.

Marie has two excellent tutorials I refer to, the first one is here on TanglePatterns and the second is linked to the Tombow blog:

She’s also the author of one of my personal favorites — and one of the earliest Zentangle-related publications — Time to Tangle With Colors.

Time to Tangle With Colors (see my review here) “contains 48 tangle patterns – several are official tangle patterns with interesting new border variations, and by my count 34 totally new patterns.”

Jester is from that 2011 publication but Marie has just recently published it on her blog. Jester is a fun tangleation, or tango, of the Zentangle-originals Fescu and Knightsbridge.

‘Tango’ is our new term for two tangles dancing together. Just as in couples dancing, in tangle tangos, one tangle is more likely to lead and the other follow.Zentangle Newsletter, November 18, 2012.

Jester is absorbing to tangle — the Knightsbridge sections can be surprisingly tricky to line up — and shading adds interesting contour to the tangle.

Marie illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Jester here on her blog. For the illustration of the steps Marie notes she used several Tombow products:

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