MC Escher style tessellation art

by Bernard B.

Bernard writes,

"When I first cut this out it looked like a cabellero riding a horse. Then I realized that I wanted it to be a little bit more interesting. So I made the horse and cabellero morphed together so it would look like an alien. Then I named it 'Alien Cabellero'."

A note on the spelling: "Caballero" is the correct spelling, meaning "horse rider" in Spanish. It is pronounced "cab-a-YE-ro", and as a family name in America it is sometimes spelled "Cabaliero".
