Parquet Tilings - Escher anyone?

I've been meaning to do this stuff for a while...

I'm generating metamorphosing Parquet Tilings, inspired by the similar Escher artwork (the most famous of which perhaps is the metamorphosis artwork he did: see his versions I, II and III).

There's something appealing to me about a shifting form that, at any point in the picture, still has a shape that can perfectly tile the plane. It's a perfect zero sum game, where the only player is the self!

These are works in progress, but I've put a few up of stuff so far.
