It’s Friday Again, So Have Some More Fish

Tessellations are fascinating, and the lines of fish in motion provide plenty of opportunity for tessellating a shape or two by a graphic designer, the master of them of course being the dutch designer  (Maurits Cornelis) MC Escher , and there are heaps of marvellous tessellations here, though it is hard to tell if all of them are his – the page seems diluted by other people’s work as you scroll down – typical.   However, just let your eyes wander over the page, and especially enjoy the images I selected to show today.

There are lots of videos but this first very short one is inspiring and is followed by several tutorials on how to make a tessellation.  I didn’t go into them – but good to know they’re there if I develop a yen to design something that way.

This one is pictured in an Escher  bio page I visited,  and is shown as a bas relief panel applied to a building with the caption “…Escher-like mural…” but considering where it is,  I’m taking it as at least based on one of his designs.

This next one is also of birds and fish, which I think is Escher’s –

and finally this marvellous Escher 1940-wood-design: Fish Theme tessellation which I think is brilliant, beautiful.
