Using the mosaic technique developed for Skater Boy, I am in the process of developing a ‘Personalised Tessellations’ series for customers.

The idea has 3 simple steps.

1. Choose Category

I’ll design tessellating motifs for a range of categories. For example, new baby, travel, selfie, friendship etc…

'New baby' motif.
‘New baby’ motif.

2. Send Photo

The customer sends in a photo of the background image they would like (low resolution is fine!)

Customer's 'new baby' photo.
Customer’s ‘new baby’ photo.

3. Personalised tessellations!

I tessellate the customer’s photo with the associated motif.

Personalised 'new baby' tessellation.

I intend to make the canvases at about 80 x 60cm, so that each motif will be approximately 3cm across. The scaling of the photo and the motif is a subtle balance. Screw your eyes up to see the photo jump out, or take a closer look to reveal a pattern of tiny interlocking motifs.

I’m currently working on some different categories to check the feasibility of the new ‘Personalised Tessellations’ series.

As always your thoughts and comments are welcome as I continue to develop new ideas. If there are any categories you are interested in – just let me know!
