Tangle challenges

After weeks of doing very little drawing I'm now doing lots. Today I completed 7 tiles. Must have something to do with a significant easing of work pressures and improved health (had bad asthma and hay fever for a couple of weeks).

Diva #296 - Moowa


Today's tangle challenges are Diva #296 - Moowa and continuing with the 12 days of 3Zs with the Mother Ship.

Moowa was relaxing and fun to draw and to shade. Hard for me not to turn it into Mooka though. Here are my tiles.

My first adds Sanibelle and a tangellation of Sanibelle that fell from my pen. I've never seen it done this way by anyone else.


My second adds Flux and Knot Ricks to Moowa/Mooka. I drew inspiration from Cris Letourneau's response to this week's challenge.



My final tile is a mono tangle of Moowa.



12 days of 3zs

I found time to get these tiles done yesterday and today.













Work news


The school year here is coming to an end. Only a week and a half to go. I will be changing schools for the start of next year. I've been at my current school for 5 years so it's time to move on and meet new challenges. I'm sad and excited at the same time. 

Last night was our school's Year 10 Formal/ Graduation. I taught many of these students when they were in Year 7 and have watched them grow ever since, even though I haven't been their regular teacher since Year 7. It was lovely night and I got lots of crazy dancing in. I'm known at school for spontaneous dance moves and terrible singing in class, so it was nice to be able to sort of dance properly maybe kinda with my ex-students last night. 


Thanks for dropping by.

Great tiles with Moowa. I love the white on black with the perfect shading and the highlights.
Your monotangle is wonderful, too. There is so much movement in it.

I love your moowa tiles! Especially the first tile. The third tile has a moowa section that has 6 round bits that curls in on itself (bottom right), it's my favorite part of that tile. :) I like your sparkles on Marasu too! :D
