Infinite Iugo

I have a small hand-made sketchbook that I use to jot down quick ideas, or for when I want to try out a new tangle. It's a sketchbook that's a little less precious so I don't worry about making things look nice. A couple of weeks ago, I came up with this little blob shape that I liked. I showed it to Debbie and she said that I should fiddle with it a bit more before making it into a tangle. I took her advice, and today, I finally feel ready to show you my newest tangle: Iugo.

"Iugo" is Latin for "connect" or "to bind together". I think it'd work great as a string, too. Here are the step-outs to Iugo, done in a nicer sketchbook:

In this black sketchbook, I explored drawing Iugo in different shapes. Shading was done with a silver Albrecht Durer coloured pencil.

Here's a traditional black and white tile featuring Iugo:

And a more abstract watercolour tile with a simple gemstone:

If you would like to share your art pieces with us, Debbie and I would like to invite you to post your art in our Facebook group: 7F5R Challenge.

Thanks for popping by our blog. Until next time... Keep tangling!
