Elephant tessellation

Sad and playful at the same time. A pleasure to draw with this symmetry system as there are no mirrors to render rigid the emerging creatures. My sole purpose is to entertain while filling the surface with identical motifs as nested shapes. Not to draw like Leonardo, but more like Disney, with encouraged exaggerations of shape and perspective. An exploration of the imaginary. Stay funny and don’t take it too seriously.
