Exciting News from Cherryl Moote!

Below is the official announcement from Cherryl Moote about her new book. I had the chance to take a look at it last week and it's lovely. This is not a Zentangle® book, but rather, a how-to-draw-plants book that uses the Zentangle approach to drawing. It also has interesting facts and observations about the plants and how to use them in your own artwork. Also note that this is a "real" ebook, not a pdf, so you will need to have a device and software that can read this format, ie: iBooks on an iPhone or iPad.


 Moote Points is excited to release our first ebook!

The Tangled Tropical Garden
by Cherryl Moote

The lush, tropical foliage of Maui is the inspiration for The Tangled Tropical Garden. Tanglers will find step-by-step instructions for drawing a variety of leaves, flowers and ferns using simple botanical forms and their favourite tangle patterns. This ebook is overflowing with vibrant colour and verdant greens, encouraging watercolour and coloured pencil enthusiasts to add a splash of visual impact to their work. Cherryl Moote is an experienced book and paper artist and author of a series of books and DVDs known for their clear, thorough, studio-tested instruction style. Cherryl is proud to be a Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT) and has revelled in the opportunity to richly illuminate this book with tangles and Zentangle inspired artwork of her own. ISBN 978-0-9784951-6-9, epub format

To purchase, go to: www.mootepoints.com/ebooks.html.

This booklet is the first in a series of Tangled Garden titles. The Tangled Garden Series offers tanglers and garden art enthusiasts the opportunity to explore a variety of types of gardens and drawing styles while creating drawings in a relaxing, playful and colourful way. Each book in the series will be available as an ebook that is overflowing with vibrant colour and verdant greens, encouraging watercolour and coloured pencil enthusiasts to add a splash of visual impact to their work. Step-by-step instructions for drawing and generous examples of sketchbook and finished artwork are featured throughout the series. A print version of the series will be published in 2014 collecting the ebook titles from the series into The Tangled Garden (ISBN 978-0-9784951-7-6).

Here is an update from Cherryl about the PAPER edition of this book:
I am aiming for March 2014 for the book as the latest date for publication. It will likely be about the same number of pages and price as All Tangled Up which means around 120 pages and $40. We will sell it through the retailers that carry it online, CZTs and our own website. Amazon isn’t a possibility for us at this point as our post office is really slow and I just can’t do mailings every day to meet the rush orders.

  1. i took cherryl's class earlier this week at Retreat to Paradise and bought her ebook on the spot. it's beautifully rendered, easy to view, fun to read, and it will serve as a reminder of the many techniques she shared with us in class.

    2. I was at the Retreat as well. Cherryl taught some of the things in this book and was a real treat. Both myself and my CZT downloaded the book in the middle of class and were thrilled to have it!

  2. Nice to know that it WILL come out as a "real" book (!) - EVENTUALLY. There are still lots of people in this world who aren't plugged in to everything electronic!

    1. Yes, that IS true - and many of us who are plugged in, still like to actually HOLD a real book too. I've updated the info above with news about the paper edition...

  6. Thanks for the review - I don't think I would have found this on my own. It's living on my iPad beside Tangles of Kells.

  7. Sandy, thank you so very much for this review. I'm a botanicals freak (just learning to use them) and this book is so beautiful. Will you be posting when she publishes her other books? I'm not quite sure how to keep track of them. I didn't see Tangles of Kells... I have to go back and look again. This is so cool!

    Tangles of Kells is my ebook, and you can find it here: http://bumblebat.wazala.com/
