Make an Escher-style tessellation online
The generated pattern will always have both colours with exactly the same shapes.
However, to make a good Escher-style pattern, you want a single distinct shape repeated.
The best way to do this is to 'nibble' away at the edges.
Even so, when you carefully paint one edge, you may find that another edge getting ruined!
That's part of the fun.
