A time of renewal. How to draw MI2 (ME TOO) By Linda Farmer, CZT CZT® Mimi Lempart of Florence, MA, and a graduate of the very first CZT class, created this amazing ornate tangle she’s named Mi² (Me Too).

How to draw MI2 (ME TOO)

Mimi writes, “I don’t often come up with tangle patterns, but this one is inspired by a tiny, intriguing, swatch of wallpaper I saw in a book. I call the pattern ‘Mi² (Me Too).’ As I sketched it out in pencil I realized a similarity to the way the patterns Huggins and W2 begin, except with oval, or seed-like shapes in alternating directions. The first two steps illustrate that you line up the seed shapes and connect them vertically (alternating inside and out). For me the most challenging part of drawing Mi² (Me Too) was the very first step – getting the seeds spaced and aligned nicely. Below the steps are two beautiful monotangle Zentangles by Mimi with examples of ways to vary Mi² (Me Too). New Artella Land.

This is something I knew not a thing about, until I got her book. Kass and I decided that a map was in order, since that combines techniques from both our books. I just took a very eventful trip from my home in Colorado to Ghost Ranch in northeastern New Mexico and decided that was the journey to map. First of all, I read the whole book since I was a Zentangle virgin. I made four spinning wine glasses and pine trees around our friend’s house in Fairplay where we drink wine.

I added color in Photoshop Kass has so many ideas in her book for this meditative art, it was hard to choose. Zentangle Community. Laughingorchid Studio.
