Escher's tessellations always seem so stiff and unfeeling.
I thought: I'll strike out in a new direction by using cartooniness & emotive caricature. This is the result:
sleepy fish, and "too much schoolin'."
The fish, if anyone is wondering, are loosely based on a reef butterfly fish called "forceps fish", "longnose butterfly fish", and (in Hawaii) "Lauwiliwilinukunukuoioi".
