# Two #Dogs #Tessellation Mini Series

Similar topic — similar colour scheme. Great combinations and potential. And of course, one of my favourite topics — the dogs in our homes.

# #Zentangle #Cadent as a #tessellation

Having fun with a few Zentangle patterns. This one is called #Cadent. A simple grid of circles is all that is needed to get going with this pattern. If you are drawing it by hand, link identical S curves between all the dots in a cascading chain of repetition, then rotate 90 degrees and repeat in this new direction.

# Pentagonal Derivative #Tessellations

### Pentagon grids

Pentagonal Derivative #Tessellations: just a short fancy way of saying that I used a grid built up of pentagons to come up with these two designs. It was quite a blast and a struggle last year (it’s not yet a complete project) to re-create all of the ways that a surface (plane) can be equally divided using pentagons. Continue reading

# Tessellation Artists around the Globe

### Artists

Updated 2023-01-20:

Since M.C. Escher started popularizing “nested shape” tessellations, many artist have dabbled in the field. Some show a passing interest, yet still create with a very deep understanding of the rules of symmetry. Others can’t get enough and create constantly in this art form.

# Superb video

A mesmerizing video by the Zaragoza University’s Math Institute that I must share with you. It deals with the underlying geometry behind many universal designs. Continue reading

# KaleidoPaint is now on Android!

The Android version of KaleidoPaint is finally finished and publicly available. I would like to share this spectacular and free app with the group Broug Atelier for Islamic Geometric Design.

# Why tessellations?

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

# Panther Tessellation — Symétruc panthère

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

# Which symmetry group to use?

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

# Symmetry Group Pm – alternating parallel mirrors

This symmetry group is the last one for me to tackle. It has been a year since I started tessellating again, since I found the KaleidoPaint iPad app. Continue reading

# Symmetry Group P6m — Perfect Snowflakes

It’s been a year last week, since I started drawing with the KaleidoPaint iPad app. I was avoiding this P6m symmetry group because of the tight space for drawing within and the abundance of mirrors. Continue reading

# Symmetry Group Pg — For all Soccer Fans

This symmetry group uses two parallel glide reflections. The glides can be either vertical or horizontal. Continue reading
