I started out making a maze using tiles and random noise

I realized that if I replaced the random noise with a grayscale mosaic, and hand drawn tiles, I could make a portrait in something resembling tapa cloth





When you view the whole thing small, it tends to look like computer ascii art.
Thought you might be interested, anyway.

It's nice to see large. [4096 x 4096]

I tried it bigger, and I rotated every other tile 90 degrees in a checkerboard weave pattern.

I also tried a color scheme that took its cues more from the original photo.

...and I made a video

I have it at 4096 x 4096. That's enough resolution to make a nice album cover for some exotica band... just sayin'
