Liberty 100 – tangle pattern (and giveaway)

Liberty 100

This is my 100th published tangle pattern. It’s a step-by-step breakdown of a carved wood panel in one of the side rooms on the ground floor of the Liberty department store, off Regent Street in London. It’s quite an intricate, full pattern, but builds easily.


In recognition of my 100th tangle pattern (did I mention that yet?), I’ve got five limited edition drypoint prints of my tangle pattern ‘Rokpool’ to give away. Each will be numbered and signed by the artist (me). If you’d like the chance to win one of these unique prints, leave a comment below indicating what you will do with the print if you win, and sign up for email updates for my blog if you haven’t done so already. Entries will close at midnight GMT on 18th January, and I will choose my favourite top five commentators on 19th January 2013.

IMG_3380_wThis is one of the print editions – each is a unique print of the same engraving plate and will be framed as shown (though see caveat below!). The print itself is 6.5 inches square. I’ve engraved, printed and mounted them myself, so you will be receiving a totally one-off piece of artwork. The giveaway is open to all, international or local, though I do reserve the right to send an unmounted print if the postage turns out to be prohibitively expensive!

And if there’s any of my tangle patterns you’d like a similar print of, let me know – I’m very happy to take commissions 😉

And you’ll be pleased to know there are more tangle patterns on their way – I’ll be publishing one each Saturday for the next few weeks.

The lucky winners have been selected, and they are: Nana, Joyce Ford, Melinda Butcher, Sandy F and Kris. Congratulations, and watch your email inbox for details on how to claim 🙂

  1. Wow – 100 tangles and i LOVE them all. I remember your last contest and I did an 8 1/2 x 11 page with my favorites (didn’t get it done in time – but had a lot of fun). I’m really glad to hear you’ll be adding more patterns. Maybe it will inspire me again 🙂

  2. I have always been an arts and crafts / art nouveau freak so your latest tangle is right up my alley! Its absolutely fab and I’ll be practicing it a lot. Your Rockpool print is beautiful an I’d be honoured to hang it in my hallway. Thank you for sharing your creative journey with us.

  3. Congratulations Neil! 100 patterns is really great! This Liberty 100 is possibly my favorite. I am looking forward to seeing the upcoming patterns. I really enjoy your Zentangle work, and admire your new career in art. The engraving of Rokpool it stunning. Thanks for sharing your gifts with us!

  4. Congratulations on the Design of 100 great patterns! AND Thank You for sharing your time, talent, and energy with us all.

  5. Congrats on your 100th pattern. Tangling is what originally brought me to your web site. So I love that you continue to make tangle patterns in addition to all of the new art you share. I’m also looking forward to your completed studio (and all the steps getting there).

    I have a craft room, and would love to hang your print there (after showing it to all my family and crafting friends) .

  6. This is my first visit, and I love that tangle 100 and have just added it to my pattern stash. I’d be tickled pink to receive a piece of your artwork, but am really excited to check out the other 99 tangles!!! You are in my bookmarks and I will be back!

  7. I am fairly new to Zentangle, but in taking time to learn the patterns, I have reconnected with an inner peace I lost long ago. Should I be lucky enough to be selected as a winner, your print would hang in my kitchen (the room I spend the most time in) and serve as a reminder that taking time to create art each day makes me whole again.

  8. Congratulations on 100 tangles! I’ve been keeping up with you since the beginning. Your first designs were great and they just keep getting better! I would hang your print in a place of honor over my desk in my art room as inspiration!

  9. Congratulations on 100 tangles! That’s quite an achievement, especially since you’re also in school – where do you find the time? I won one of your contests earlier but didn’t find out until it was too late, so maybe I’ll be luckier this time. If so, I would probably hang the print in my living room so that I, as well as my family, could enjoy it on a daily basis.

  10. Congrats on finding 100 patterns. I love most of them (altho many are too intricate for me personally), and I have to say that Rokpool is my favorite of them all. Thanks for reminding me about it; I’ll start using it again in the RAKs (random acts of kindness) I send out. What would I do w/ one of your prints? Frame it and display it for my Zentangle ™ students to appreciate. Again, congrats! Oil City Anita

  11. Incredible! I am just discovering tangling and am looking forward to following you for inspiration and quite possibly that little push needed to continue to create! Thank you for sharing your work. I would hang your print on the wall between my kitchen and my work room where it would be shared with all that visit my home, and remind me to enjoy my passions! Congratulations on your 100th pattern!

  12. Awesome tangle. I love all your wotk. Your site is one of the very first I went to when I began tangling about a year ago. So the framed piece is sort of sentimental to me :-).

  13. What a wonderful discipline. Your patterns are great. Since I started becoming interested in tangling, I see patterns in everything differently. I see lots of beauty in repetitions of design and wonder about how to replicate them. It is a fun practice.

  14. Lovely work like always. Thanks so much for the giveaway an all the wonderful designs you publish.

  15. Hi Just discovered your page on FB… Congrats on your 100th Tangle.. looking forward to checking them all out.. have just started tangling again…

  16. The lucky winners have been selected, and they are: Nana, Joyce Ford, Melinda Butcher, Sandy F and Kris. Congratulations, and watch your email inbox for details on how to claim!
