Ringz, A New Tangle


Allow me to introduce you to a fun little tangle,

that is easy and joyful to make!


So named because of all the little rings I drew

making this alien looking work of fun-ness.

I drew this in the Detroit airport during a layover flight.

I needed something easy to do as I balanced my sketchbook on my lap, along with my ipad and my earphones.

I had been obsessed with these little eyeballs and needed somewhere to use them,

and in the Detroit airport ringz was born.

Ringz is really very easy to tangle.

Start with a circle and start adding rings under that,

building one below the one before it.

I decided to make mine as arms extended from a central point.

Then I added the little wink of an eye at the end.

I began layering them with circles of various tangles.

And ringz just kind of took on a life of its own.

Hahaha! Another tangle I love right now is narwal.

Ringz, narwal, and printemps were made for each other!

Here I was going for some heavy contrast, so I pulled in another tangle of mine –

patch –

and filled those large circles with it.

Shading makes the big difference in this piece of art.

It’s all about the details.

I would love to see what you do with ringz.

Please give it a try and let me know what you think.

Also, I am going to be in Maine for the next nine days.

Hanging drapes and daydreaming in the new house.

I hope to have internet next week sometime,

but blog posts may need to wait

till I get back home.

Have a great week!

  1. Great fun – I like the way your far right image in the step outs box looks like an illustration with a shadow!Enjoy your home-making. I'm rehanging curtains in the office when the last coats of paint are dry. Paula (PEP)
