This tessellation development was mentioned in my previous blog. It is of the Do3 dragon tessellation. The interesting part of creating these picture stories is that they were all based on studies or earlier sketches and were inspired by either MCE or other artists. Making this little dragon run around the page was a fun challenge. The use of the icosahedron and the triangular paper adds some geometric interest and is related to the triangular grid of the dragon tessellation. The protractor and pencil were used to create an eye stopper and they were used to create the drawing. I've depicted several of the drawing or printing tools in previous images.
Michael Wilson has been creating tessellation art for over 40 years and is preparing this blog to share thoughts on the subject.
