Key Pattern Style

Click for larger view.

This style is known as key pattern. You will find similar examples in the art of almost every culture, real or imagined. What I have done here is just a practice exercise. You can use this technique in all sorts of ways. As borders, space fillers, etc. It is very fun and can bring about some really nice results.

I haven't really come across a standard interpretaion for this style, but I can make up my own. When you lay down a key pattern design you cover every square inch of space with a maze like pattern. Also everything is linked together. I liken this to life in general. It is all prevailing, sometimes confusing, and it's all linked up. As Douglas Adams put it, "The interconnectedness of all things!"
