A New Multi-Cultural Cuisine? No, A New Tangle!

Ever heard of a Thai-Mexican Restaurant? Nor have I. But if you say the name of this tangle out loud, you'll hear the clue to what I began to see when I drew what I intended to be a purely abstract pattern:

I was inspired to sketch out some new tangle ideas on graph paper after collecting and drawing so many elegant grid-based patterns from Neil Burley (Perfectly4med). I have a bit of a split personality when it comes to artistic taste (Classical to Jazz and Funk, Vintage Givenchy to Bohemian, etc.), so it follows that my favorite tangles range from the organic, free-flowing designs to the classically-inspired 'wallpapery' patterns.

Variety is the spice of life, yes?  (Hmmm - anyone know what kind of spice goes well with a tamale in peanut sauce?)

I really enjoyed the puzzle of how I could situate the various pieces for the effect I wanted.

Thanks for stopping by!
