Squidee, Reticulated and X-Spots

These freeform patterns are fun! You don't need to measure with a ruler or use a pencil to mark the distance between two or more points when you draw any of these. Just go! These are 100% ruler-free, pencil-free and stress-free patterns!


For examples on how I have used them, feel free to browse my photostream. ^_^

    Rulers? Pencils? What are those?

    Love these!

    when my son was little and went through a chewing stage, he would chew on my elbow when I was changing him which prompted me to write a wee ditty to the articulated jaw notion:

    o I'm a baby boa with an articulated jaw
    and I can swallow anything down my mighty maw
    gonna swallow my ma down my maw

    o I'm a baby boa and I always want more
    gonna swallow my ma down my maw

    Needless to day, love your articulated python :)

    Adorable! I'll be playing with these soon. Gabriel - love your story and ditty!

    I would love this one if Linda Farmer hadn't mentioned the python snake aspect of the design. It will take a bit for me to overcome that image. By the way, Skinny Stray Cat, your style of zentangle really appeals to me. Of all the sites I visit, I come to yours the most. Thanks for sharing. I would so love to meet you. But, from what I can tell, you don't live in the US. I'll have to enjoy your work from afar.

    I would like your consent to include this design and others in a book I am writing. How can I get in touch with you?
