It’s interesting how, as your Zentangle practice evolves, you sometimes veer away from grid-based tangles, preferring flowing, organic, individual elements.

Every so often, I feel an urge to return to those structured reticula, filled with repeated fragments. There’s something soothing about drawing them that fills you with peace and zen-flow.

For this small, Bijou tile, I chose Yincut. It is actually one of my favorites because of the overall look of the finished piece. It reminds me of an old-fashioned, lithographic print.

What is your favorite grid-based tangle?
