# Environmental Barometer — The Frog!

A tessellation created inside a box of four different mirrors. I guess I like to challenge myself, if you take into account my distaste of symmetry methods that use multiple mirrors.

# It’s my Yellow Stage

It’s my least favourite colour. Yellow. But I’m making progress. Had some wicked dreams all in yellow light. We’re into Rubber Duckies for the eBikes lately. Cute, a bike horn, but more of a squeak. Not obnoxious. Not a jolt for pedestrians we might sneak upon. These duckies have a light, more like a flashing disco glow, and nothing to shine your way home about. And they are a great conversation starter.

# #goodbye2020 — the year’s topics

How we felt, what we were talking about, what we were living, our concerns, our comforts, all were 2020-related conversations: That I converted to my favourite graphic style.

# Ollie and Daughter — at Bridges Conference 2021

Created this tessellation a few months ago. It has become a favourite. Dad and Daughter of the Tortoise family.

# Tessellation Topic: Covid 19

Kinda difficult not to be affected by the main topic on the world stage this year. I have watched the news, read the news, lived the news like everyone else. It would be nice to forget everything, but we need to get through this, for some unknown reason. As such, below, are my Covid (un)-inspired sketches and completed tessellations, all together now. Isn’t that a Beatles’ tune?

# My Best in Each Symmetry Group — P4

Symmetry Group P4 is made up of two different four-way rotations through 90 degrees surrounded by four identical 2 way rotations. No mirrors here.

# My Best in Each Symmetry Group — P2

The Foosball symmetry group. Symmetry Group P2 is based on a four sided grid, which can be skewed into lozenges, parallelograms. Each of the corners has a two-fold rotation point.

# My Best in Each Symmetry Group — P1

Symmetry Group P1 is the most simple of all symmetry systems. A repeat or translation, of your design both vertically and horizontally. That’s it!

# Tessellation classes coming soon on Skillshare

I’ll be setting up a series of videos on Skillshare this fall. If you don’t know what Skillshare is, do check it out.

# P6m Symmetry — Yuckiest Group (of FIVE)

Trying to cram a character inside this tiny triangle, surrounded by mirrors is a pain in the keister. I have steered clear of this symmetry group for the simple reason that I’m not a fan of mirrors in tessellations. The only time I like mirrors is for the bilateral symmetry in a humanoid form. Those I’ve done lots. My latest love was Mr. Ruffles, a cutie from a few centuries ago. This time, I’ve managed to stuff “FIVE” of them in there!

# Pencil Neck Alien #tessellation

Started this drawing using a Cairo tiling as a base, which is an arrangement of pentagons. Weird how these things morph in my fingers. It was originally constructed using symmetry group P4g about 10 days ago. These things sometimes make no sense to me, but I just go with the flow.
