Escher’s Butterflies Migrating Over The Rivers of Africa

I’ve really found Escher’s work to be inspirational and it’s so nice to be able to take it into a new dimension. I re-imagined Escher’s Butterflies in one of my earlier posts and now I’ve finished mapping the whole continent’s rivers I’ve been able to realise a new, more complete, look for the idea.

I particularly like the granularity and textures in each butterfly’s wings and bodies – if you look more closely you’ll see what I mean.
