E is for...

Eccentric Escher Effort
BAB_06_final
I'm a big M.C. Escher fan, so when I got the opportunity to do something that involves the idea of multiple points of view, I jumped at the chance to play with strange spacial relationships and impossible forms. It was great fun, and incorporates many different traditional media as well as some tweeks in Photoshop.

Ecstatic at the effusive exclamations, everyone. Especially Anonymous, even after having been excessively eaten.

Enough, already...I'm running out of "E" words.

Love optical illusions! Great "E" choice.
