I'm blind! Actually my stigmatism makes it worse, it gets all move-y and it hurts. Really awesome!

Thanks. This one almost made me go blind. I could only work for about three hours at a time, because my vision would blur it all into grey for a while.

Amazing that you can do something like that manually!
I hafta ask though, what happens when you're near the end and you make a mistake (eg, coz of a twitch, cramp, cat jumpin on you, whatever) ???

Thanks. First you make sure you never lose concentration. If you have one of those moments where you realize you weren't paying attention, you stop and take a break. Staring at those intricate patterns makes you nuts after a few hours and you go somewhat blind for a few seconds and it all blends together into grey. Then you hope that you don't screw up. If you do however mess up, you cover it up as best as you can, by adding different parts or leaving something out, and hopefully no one notices. These are all filled with tiny mistakes, but the geometrics are so intense most people would never know.

LOL. Thanks. Yes, I did draw it by hand. I took a look at the link and it is a cool piece. It's definately got the depth of field and the optical confusion. Nice work.

Very very cool. Your style is similar to mine. Your picture is amazing. You have good eye for detail. I didnt even notice the change from black to blue but it really does add depth to it. Keep up the good work!

This one is just as beautiful as Twist. I can't decide which one I love more. They're both very beautiful. You have an incredible talent. Are you going to do any more? :heart:

Thanks. I already have two others done but they havn't been photographed yet. One is like the center image in stare but much more intricate. It's a living piece, meaning that iot is mounted on wood with a crank that spins the image. Once I figure out how best to shoot it I will post it. The second is a similar drawing which will be posted in a few days. The best thing to do is check back in a couple days or add me to your watch list. I promise to take picturesx soon. Thanks for your comments.
