Zentangle Inktober Tangles Day 8 – SNACK

Zentangle Inktober Tangles Day 8 handed me a pattern by a fellow CZT known for fun, thinky patterns.

Inktober Tangles Day 8 Snack

SNACK is a bite-sized pattern that can be configured in any number of ways. Created by Tomas Padros, as with many of his patterns, you must pay attention to what you’re doing. If you do, your efforts will be rewarded. The pattern starts with a spirally S shape. You then close off the sides with a gentle arc. Lay them end-to-end to create a border or play with the scale to fill in a space.

Today’s Tangle

Inktober Day 8 Snack

I decided to play with scale while making lines thicker and deepening intersections. I paired it with a wonky version of Purk and came up with this fun tangle. This particular card is bitter sweet as it is the last full piece of art that I created at the camp this year – wintertime in New England makes year round camping challenging. Our campground closes shortly after Indigenous People’s Day, and with it, so does my happy art-making place!

SNACK’s ability to transform based on how you treat the corners the spirals make it a wonderfully versatile pattern. Once you get the hand of drawing it, it can easily be tweaked to fit your style.
