This is a digital drawing I did in Photoshop in 2006.
The image is based on a self portrait drawing by M C Escher.
I have not included any of his lithographs and mezzotints as I am not sure about copyright on them. But you probably know them, and I would recommend looking his work up on Wikipedia if you haven’t seen them before.
From flights of birds or shoals of fish intricately drawn so they tesselate and move past each other, to water flowing downhill infinitely, people walking up and down stairs that twist and turn worse than in Harry Potter… Eschers work is mind expanding, exciting, exhilarating!
The lithographs I have seen are in black and white. Reality is skewed, people move in 3 dimensions, but at impossible angles. Up and down are confused.
Each picture is intricate, tiny details immerse you in an alien world. This is amazing art from the past, do have a look at them if you can.
