Don’t ask me how the software works, or about the geometry recalculations it does. I just want to share how cool this widget is. And ever so simple. Continue reading
Djeeewizz it’s hot out today, sure hope my hair doesn’t get too messed up. Another tessellation popping up out of the blue. Have no idea where these originate from, deep within my cranium. She sort of reminds me a bit of Continue reading
My garden beds wander all over the place. My hair flies as it wishes, always has. My tessellations don’t follow established “rules”, I cheat with shared space (although I find that cool still), and hidden or overlaps in spaces. Why would I even think I could draw IGDs, Islamic Geometric Designs. Way too structured and rigid for me. But oh so cool, with millions of different permutations, colours, styles. Still. I like geometry. This one reminds me of the Magenta Mayhem tessellation I did a while back.Continue reading

Many times, I will sketch a whole bunch of tessellations. Some look okay, others somehow keep my interest, but have flaws or unresolved areas. I usually leave them aside for a while and return with a fresh eye. One such tessellation was the Jewel Thief. Continue reading
At first glance, I was thinking this might be a P6m symmetry challenge. Pulled up KaleidoPaint on the tablet and tested my theory.

If we look at what M.C. Escher used as topics for his tessellations, and do a quick search around the planetary neighbourhood… there is definitely an evolution and expansion that has occurred since his lifetime. Escher used to incorporate birds and fishes, reptiles, Continue reading
I’m just a kid that still likes to draw. From early on, in the crib, with any available medium. Fortunately back then, oil-based wall paint was easily washable. Continue reading
A challenge to help my Nephew understand the basic rules of tessellations for a math class. Wish I had been fortunate enough to get an opportunity like this when I was a teen. La leçon est en français à part de ça! Continue reading
You may wish to save your KaleidoPaint drawings other than by emailing images of them or saving them to your Photos folder on your tablet. In this case, you need to save the actual dot TXT file, a file that gives written instructions to your tablet, on how to recreate your drawing. Continue reading
Received my cups from society6. Ever cool to see my designs printed on these coffee cups. Continue reading
Deciding which symmetry group to use for a specific design can be hit and miss. And try again. You can narrow it down Continue reading
