How to draw HOODIE

Canadian Thanksgiving comes at a perfect time of year, “on the second Monday in October, to celebrate the harvest and other blessings of the past year.” This has been a very strange year but I’m sure each of us can count many blessings in our lives to be thankful for. Thanksgiving holiday, or not.

In keeping with the Canadian theme, today we have Hoodie, a tangle from Quebec tangler Rosemary Turpin.

Rosemary writes that Hoodie was inspired by the pattern she noticed on a hoodie worn by a character in Heartland, a Canadian “family drama” television program.

In this tile Rosemary features Hoodie as a ribbon-style tangle running diagonally from corner to corner, together with some Zentangle®-originals.

She writes,

It is quite forgiving except that it is important to keep your triangles pretty well the same size throughout and your lines of triangles straight, horizontally and vertically so that they can meet where they should.

You can start anywhere in any shape and just continue expanding it until you hit something you don`t want to cross, or the edge of the paper, whichever comes first! One day I used the beginning of it and extended it in all directions until it was a string. The internal aura-ing (a four-pointed star) of the finished design is optional, but I like to use it.

Another fun one to play with. I did a few versions of Hoodie and thought this one lengthening the stroke in Step 2 then connecting them with graphite circles was kind of interesting. If I’d shaded a little differently they would almost look like raised bubbles.

Rosemary illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Hoodie below.
