How to draw MOSI

Zentangle pattern: Mosi. Image © Linda Farmer and TanglePatterns.com. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. You may use this image for your personal non-commercial reference only. The unauthorized pinning, reproduction or distribution of this copyrighted work is illegal.Today we have two tangles for your creative explorations, a Friday bonus!

First we have Mosi, a meditative tangle that’s fun to explore because it is so flexible and unpredictable and can really fit into any shape of section in your Zentangle® tiles.

Mosi is from CZT Katy (Katherine) Kehoe of Greenbrae CA and it’s her first on the site.

Katy writes,

I come from a family of artists and have been doing various types of art in different mediums since I was a child. I have been tangling for about 4 years now and became a CZT at training #28 this past June in Providence.

I am also a one-on-one math teacher specializing in Algebra. I have always had these two sides to me, math and art. Zentangle is a wonderful method that feeds both sides of my brain.

I was inspired by some Japanese artwork I saw and developed Mosi and Mositoo. They remind me of lichen or moss hence the names. They are patterns that are easy to remember, draw and incorporate into different spaces in a tile.

I have found them to be quite relaxing to work with and satisfying to incorporate in my Zentangle tiles. They can be used as background patterns as well as dominant medallion shapes.

I agree, both are easy to remember and very satisfying to tangle.

Katy illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Mosi below and demonstrates it in a Zentangle tile with Eden Hunt’s Groovy.
