Truchet Tile Multiscale

Truchet Tiles are square design elements. Generally they are arranged in a grid tiling with random rotations. This sketch adds additional complexity by allowing tiles at various scales.

I have used a “winged” tile set as described by Christopher Carlson. The entire graphic is drawn using only black and white ellipses. Arcs are composed of several ellipses swept around a radius. This tile set scales without seams.
