Over the years, I have posted a few water polo posters and designs. This year, I finally decided to print some tshirts with the designs. Check out my designs at my Etsy shop, ViroBooks.
All profits will go to supporting the University of New Mexico women’s water polo team, whom I coach. UNM has a lot of talented players, but travel in this part of the country is truly taxing; our closest opponents are five hours away and we have frequently faced snow storms and car trouble.
I hope that ViroBooks will inspire my water polo designs going forward and inspire design in the water polo community.
In materials science class, we examined wallpaper patterns for symmetries. Atoms and molecules can pack according to a variety of crystal structures. Mathematics obviously loves patterns too. There are fractal tilings and tessellations. Who doesn’t love Escher? There are probably practical applications to tiling, but more importantly they are great fun that tickles the brain. Recently I took my first stab at pattern making depicting (what else?) water polo.
