How to draw MEASLES

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

Today we have a super easy tangle with lots of possibilities for you to play with.

Measles is from Ireland’s Judith Hopkinson, known around the Zentangle community as Kai, The Yorkshire Tortoise.

Measles, she writes, is named “after the local sailing dinghy, used for learners, called a Measle.”

Being a total landlubber I wondered what a Measle looked like and found an article on Afloat, “Ireland’s Sailing, Boating and Maritime Magazine”:

“In Ireland at Skerries local sailor Brian Malone, a naval architect with BIM (the Sea Fisheries Board) created a tiny children’s sailing pram dinghy which he called the Measle, as every kid would have it sooner or later. … the Measles had to be robustly built to cope with Irish conditions”.

Emphasis mine in the quote above. Don’t you love how the name came about! 🙂

Judith gives us a little of her background,

Amongst the Tangle Challenge community I am known by my nickname of The Yorkshire Tortoise, so I have stuck with that on my pattern page. In spite of my name I live in Ireland! I discovered Zentangle® last year and have been busy tangling ever since, both using the Zentangle® Method properly and also creating all sorts of fun ZIA.

As often as possible I enter the various Tangle challenges which is what my blog is geared to. I have been amazed by the fun that can be had by reading other Tanglers blog’s and getting involved with the online community.

An easy grid-based tangle, Measles can be varied all sorts of ways with alternating ink fills and graphite. ZIA enthusiasts will relish the color opportunities with this tangle.

Judith illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Measles here on her blog.

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.

    A Measle, eh? Around here we have the Cape Cod Frosties, wee little sailboats that can be built from 2 sheets of plywood and which are sailed by rather insane and rabid summer sailors who can’t bear not sailing in the winter. They’re barely big enough to hold one person and these folks sail on Sunday afternoons around here. Since salt water is much slower to freeze, they get in a good bit of water time each winter. The temperature might be 10 degrees but if there’s a breath of wind they’re going to play in it!
