Many iterations of a tessellation

You Talkin’ to Me?

The final version. A long time coming. Lots of work. Many iterations. A few false off-spurs. Not a horse. Not a centaur. Not human. Don’t know who this is. But definitely seems to be ranting like Robert to Donald on youtube. You Talkin’ to Me?

You Talkin’ to Me? tessellation by F.Champagne ©2013-2017 — this one has all creatures with the same colour scheme.

Original sketch 2013

Trying to work out a few problematic areas

“How short you want me to trim that?” was a version with a pair of scissors. He was grabbing the other one’s tail and threatening to trim it. Competition short or free-range Shire horsie short? Too bad I didn’t keep a copy.

Are You Talkin’ to Me? tessellation by Francine Champagne © 2013 — this was sketched with a version of KaleidoPaint that did not yet have the line editing option.

Still not satisfied with the result, this needs more work

Reducing the tessellation to a few major lines.  © 2016 — KaleidoPaint now has line editing possibilities

Attempting to resolve all dual purpose lines. Getting close.

    • Cool tessellations, and lithographs, block prints… lots of work! May I add your blog address and name to my list of tessellation artists? So few of us. Would be nice to have a cup of coffee and a chat!

      • Francine – Hope you are well. I’m glad you are writing so much about tessellations! I’ve been on your site many times. I recently finished a demonstration at MFA. It was a lot of fun and I talked so much the first day I got laryngitis. All better now. We should chat. You are very prolific in your web updates. Mine are sporadic and I’m not the best writer but I am having fun and enjoy doing this in my spare time. Best regards Mike
