How to draw ZIGOLI

Zigoli is from Canadian CZT Deb Bowyer and it’s her first on the site.

A tangleation of the Zentangle®-original Tripoli, Zigoli is a fun and easy ribbon-style tangle.

Deb writes,

I am Deb Bowyer, CZT23, held in April of 2016 in Providence, Rhode Island. I live in Fort St. John, British Columbia – Canada – which is a very rural and remote area in the northeast of our beautiful province.

I discovered Zentangle in 2013 in the summer at a family French camp. A young adult was sitting in the camping area with a large piece of poster board and a big Sharpie. She was drawing patterns. When I asked her what she was doing she explained it was Zentangle and to “Google it”. I watched her finish that project over the week. It was a beautiful – but very representational – piece of art depicting a cityscape.

I didn’t “Google” it until the following year when I was laid off from my career with our local school district after twenty five years of service. I was in a dark place emotionally and I didn’t know what I was going to do with myself. Work defined me in a way. So I went online and searched out Zentangle. I joined some Facebook groups; I ordered some inexpensive supplies – not very nice ones mind you – and I bought a few books.

I started to tangle. I found that it was helping me to emotionally heal and that I was feeling less stress. Things I truly needed in my life. I quickly decided that this was what I was looking for and that I wanted to teach others. I signed up for the spring session of CZT training. I was hooked. The rest, they say, is history!

I’ve been teaching since May of 2016 and went online last year during Covid. I haven’t looked back. I love sharing this art method with people and meeting new friends all over the world.

I’m a huge lover of “fragments” and have taught several classes using them. This border pattern came from the love of the Tripoli themed fragment. It starts with a “zigzag” and incorporates Tripoli – hence the name of “Zigoli”.

Deb illustrates the step-by-step instructions for drawing Zigoli below where it stars as the focal in a Zentangle® tile with the Zentangle-originals Diva Dance, Flux and Hollis.
