32. Interlocking Skull

Skull designed for interlocking pattern, filled with that selfsame pattern. For more interlocking patterns check out M.C. Escher.

UPDATE:
I've been told that it's not entirely clear what I did here. To explain, the pattern is made of the same repeated shape, which fits seamlessly with all the ones around it (like bricks)...
Does that help?

This is called a sliding grid.

This would make great wrapping paper for gifts. Top it off with a lovely black velvet bow and you not only have a present- but also a work of art.

I would so love to get a present wrapped in this paper!

Nice tessellation! I'm so glad I found your blog, I too have been a skull fan for years, before it became "the thing". I've recently found a few drawings/paintings from my first year of college (8 years ago) that can back me up. :)
