Stubs: Non-official Zentangle/ZIA tangle pattern

Stubs (was Nibs)

Tangle patterns are everywhere, even in the art of others.

Jennifer Maestre is one artist that thinks outside the box--or rather, outside the drawing. Instead of using her pencils to sketch with, she cuts them up, and sews them into the most incredible creatures.


The minute I saw her work, I realized there was a tangle there, and STUBS was born.

It's a tangle with energy that will add pizzazz to your zentangle.


  1. Thanks for the wonderful link to Jennifer...WOW!...what amazing art there and HERE! Way to rock it Sandra!!! Congrats on your new blog!!! :)

  2. I just love her work. It is so different from anything I've ever seen.

  3. It really does have much the same aura of ornamentation and detail that zentangles do.

  4. Definitely! She's traded one of her small pencil urchins for one of my zentangles. I can't wait to get it!
