Ol' Blue Eye

I've had this idea of doing a Euro 4-in-1 sheet of a picture adaptation, but I hadn't been able to decide on what to do. I was revisiting my inspiration files and 'focused' on M.C. Escher's art--in particular, his "Eye" mezzotint from 1946. It has always been one of my favorites, and I thought I could adapt it to the chainmaille pattern. I've sketched out the pattern and I think it's either going to be super-cool or so-totally not. There are 4720 rings, so I'm really hoping for the cool. It's worth the time and effort if it turns out like I envision and it leads to other patterns and pictures. I'll post photos of the progression of "Ol' Blue Eye" if I think it's going well. If not, you'll never hear about it again.
