    Default Tessellating patterns

    Since as long as I can remember I've always had a fascination with the drawings and prints by M.C. Escher.

    https://mcescher.com (official MC Escher website)

    I was thrilled when I had the opportunity in 2015 to go to the exhibition of his work at Dulwich Picture Gallery in London. It was such a revelation to see original copies of his work. You don't get anywhere near the same level of detail and experience the paper texture in books, even in glossy art books.

    Anyway, here's something that I made around that time, inspired by his wonderful work.

    That would make a super poster, Jonopen.

    Nice, but there's something fishy about this image.

    I rarely print things out nowadays but thanks for the idea. Being based on vectors it should scale up ok.

    How did I miss that challenge? I’ll have a go in the next few days.

    Here’s something also Escher related I’ve just found whilst rummaging my old hard drive.

    Hi Jono, I've been messing about with tessellating recently too. Works well on bitmap fills but I'm having issues trying to use svg fills. I keep getting thin borders. Here's a bitmap fill one that works fine.

    You can get some interesting results if you clone then rotate the fill 90 degrees then apply a 50%ish colour dodge transparency. I attach the repeating tile.

    You can also create triangular tessillations. This one is the same purple shape over drawn in three different ways and rotated 60 degrees at a time.

    Never give up. You will never fail, but you may find a lot of ways that don't work.
