|How to draw a "Paradox"
We named this tangle "Paradox" because it consists only of straight lines which create beautiful spirals.
These images below are all oriented in one direction so it's easier to follow each step.
However, when you create yours, it's easier to rotate your tile each time so you always draw your line in a similar direction. I like to draw each line towards me, ending at a corner.
Paradox is fun to shade and appears three dimensional.
You can also explore this tangle with squares, rectangles, pentagons -- any shape with straight sides.
|John's New Helmet
When weather permits, our friend John Z. rides his vintage motorcycle to work. He recently bought a new helmet which he loves, except it made him look like an empire stormtrooper from Star Wars.
So he brought it to Maria. This is what she did with it!
Maria used Chalk Ink™, a water-based, opaque,
pigment ink marker. It's waterproof when dry, but cleans off with an ammonia based glass cleaner like Windex�
Every now and then Maria and I internet surf to see other folks' new Zentangle images.
When you have a moment, take a look. It is exciting and inspiring to see what others are doing with Zentangle.Click
