when pigs fly, a first-time tessellation by a child


Like Anea's Angels, Austin's flying pigs are a translational (slide) tessellation. Unlike Anea's Angels, Austin's fling pigs fit together neatly, with uniformly thick lines separating each pig "tile" (pig outline) from every other. Anea's Angelsare more colorful and quite beautiful, but as an engineering feat, Austin's pigs are technically a better tessellation in that way.

Let's look a little closer at the pig shapes, though. The tails are mushroom shaped, which is un-piglike. I'd like to see Austin do juuuusssst a liiiiittle more work tweaking that tail shape, to make it more perfectly piglike.
