Mooka much?

On the Zentangle blog this week, a brand new tangle (pattern) was revealed!

It is called Mooka, and it's creation was inspired by the wonderful Art Nouveau artist, Alphonse Maria Mucha.  Maria and Rick have also released a wonderful video, demonstrating Mooka (their first video, for the tangle Betweed, is also a must see).

This week, I am the Diva challenged us to, "Create a traditional Zentangle tile or ZIA (Zentangle Inspired Art) using the new official tangle: Mooka."

Having found myself so thoroughly addicted to drawing Mooka (on everything that sits still) that I'm loathe to spend more than a few minutes with the computer, I've decided to forgo my usual wordy blog entry and just post photographs of some of my Mooka ZIA (try saying that fast a few times – it's fun!)...
and then I'm going to Mooka* some more...

My new "chop" (KJ) unveiled — tangled up in Mooka

Thanks for the hat, Moira! 
I Mooka'd it.

More Mooka (actually... this was my first attempt)
Mooka'd Hat again (more views)

*I'm convinced that, although Mooka (the tangle) is clearly a noun... the word also makes a pretty nifty verb: "to Mooka"

— So... do you Mooka much? I do!!

  1. Wow! Mooka Madness! What beauty it inspires! Love the hat. That last ZT makes me think of a journal page. Mooka would be a fantastic embellishment for something like that.
