Hey there, I'm Bill Connolly, your cartoonist and artist extraordinaire. And have you ever said to yourself boy I'd love to draw some Celtic knot-work. Have you ever seen that design, symmetrical design? It goes up like this and it's very symmetrical. And, alright it's like that. And then it comes around the other side. It's a good idea to plot it out first before you ink it in. It comes around and you might have seen these on tattoos on people’s arms or all over the place. And then you can go and you can correct it. As you go around here make sure the right part is going over and under, like that. And bring it around. There, you can even shade it under here if you want to. Get a little fancy with it. Kind of a pretzel like design and that's how to do a Celtic knot from memory in less than three minutes. And I'm Bill Connolly your artist and cartoonist extraordinaire. Thanks for watching.
