From impossible shapes to three-dimensional sketches and trick art, you won’t believe your eyes as you learn to draw optical illusions in graphite and colored pencil.
Do you want to know how to draw mind-bending illusions and three-dimensional trick art in graphite and colored pencil? I was first fascinated by optical illusions after studying about M.C. Escher in art class in grade school. During Christmas that year, my aunt had a book where you could stare at the page and an image would appear. Well, it was supposed to appear. I sat there cross-eyed for at least thirty minutes before I saw the picture coming forward before my eyes! Ah ha! It’s not a trick, it’s an optical illusion! How do I make them?
