# Dog Walker tessellation

Can’t help drawing poopers, I have two huge ones here. Yahoos that have the freedom of fields, forests and beaches. Spoiled rotten. Not like the poor buggers tied up to leashes in tiny city dog parks. Continue reading

# Orangement tessellation

Third post in the series, in trying to figure out which symmetry group is being showcased.  In order to do this, you must determine if there are any mirrors, any glides, any rotation points, any translations. Go for it! Continue reading
