Full disclosure! I work for Tombow USA as their Signature Designer. I am financially
compensated for this consulting job and receive Tombow Products on a regular basis to review
and write about. The opinions here are completely my own based on my experience.
For the tangle posts I need to apologize if you have already created a similar tangle. It’s hard to
keep up with all you creative tanglers creating new and wonderful patterns! This is a Zentangle
tangleation of one of my favorite official Zentangle® tangles, Knightsbridge.
I named this tangleation ‘Jester’ as it is fun a version of Knightsbridge and the curls add quirky
For the modern calligraphy in the title, I have used Tombow’s Fudenosuke Brush Pen, Hard Tip.
You can download a FREE Lettering Practice Workshop from the Tombow website here to learn
modern calligraphy with this pen!
For drawing this tangle, I used Tombow’s new MONO Drawing Pens. They come in 01, 03 and
05 tip sizes. They are juicy with nice strong tips that don’t bend if you are like me and heavy
handed when drawing.
For shading the tangle, I used Tombow MONO Drawing Pencil. These artist grade, extra-refined
graphite pencils produce superior shading of your tangles. They come in 14 point strengths
from soft 6B to a hard 6H. The shading here was done with B and 2B MONO Drawing Pencils.
‘Jester’ is a tangleation that was first published in my book ‘Time to Tangle in Colors’ a Design Originals Published book by Marie Browning.
