Twin Dragons

After creating the Dragon tiles, we thought it would be cool to do the Twin Dragon, which has much more frilly edges. All of the descriptions of the Twin Dragon that I knew of focused on the space-filling curve that defines the interior of the dragon. But I wanted to generate just the border. Dylan Thurston found an elegant procedure that enabled us to create Twin Dragon boundary at any level of detail.

Here’s a pair of finished twin dragons.

We recently made some business cards using a low-detail twin dragon.

Here’s a framed version of a complete set of our tiles. Heidi used colors that evoke mid-century modern.

We loved it when our son Max’s girlfriend, Karen, paid us a visit. Heidi set her up with a Twin Dragon puzzle.
