Fish and Seahorse

(November 2002) pgg tiling: 2 motifs Again, I wanted to do something in a different symmetry group, so I went through Escher’s drawings until I found one with a particularly interesting pattern underneath: no. 68 (“Two Reptiles”). Playing with the rhombuses that underlie this design, I found the fish shape. I tweaked it until the spaces inbetween started to suggest something—and fortunately that was another water-dweller, the seahorse.
