How to draw QUAGGA

Not too long ago we explored her Sling-Slang tangle. Lisette is coming to CZT#32 in October and she’s very excited!

Quagga? An unusual name to be sure.

Lisette explains …

I was looking for a name beginning with “Q”. In our FB-Tangle Group we used to draw tiles from A to Z some time ago. The patterns of each tile had to begin with the same letter: A-tile, B-tile…. Z-tile. It was great fun but very challenging with the letter “Q” as there are very few Q-patterns.

Recently I came across the name Quagga which is a (unfortunately) extinct zebra who lived in South Africa. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quagga).

I think the name matches the pattern: it is round and striped.

From Wikipedia:

The quagga (Equus quagga quagga) was a plains zebra that lived in South Africa until becoming extinct late in the 19th century. It was long thought to be a distinct species, but early genetic studies have supported it to being a subspecies of plains zebra. A more recent study suggested that it was merely the southernmost ecotype of the species.

The name was derived from its call, which sounded like “kwa-ha-ha”.

We learn the most interesting and eclectic things with our tangles!

Lisette shares several beautiful Zentangle® tiles featuring her tangle. The first features Quagga with CZT Angie Gittles’s recent Flog tangle.

Her second tile features Quagga with Diva Dance, Lace Curtains, Mooka, Lollywimple and ‘Nzeppel.

Here Lisette illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Quagga and she features it with variations in a lovely Zentangle tile together with the Zentangle-original ‘Nzeppel.
