Sketchbook volume two of a two book set and documents the best of the optical illusions discovered and sketched in our CAD system.

The book defines common visual attributes and categorize optical illusions. The goal is give the reader new tools to help them identify and classify optical illusions. These illusions are used by engineers, academics and artists to graphically depict their ideas and the three dimensional world around them.

From the Author:

This book represents a small selection from the thousands of optical illusion designs created in our CAD system. They give a good insight into the exploration and note the works that took the next step and were painted in large format using traditional oil paint on stretched canvas. These works and the process to create them are documented to the second book 'Exploring Illusions - Paintings'

I think it is always nice to get a peek into the artists sketchbook to see what is behind the final paintings. This book gives you that inside view. Hope you enjoy it..

From the Back Cover:

Inspiration for Exploring Illusions

Drawings and paintings are all optical illusions

Successfully converting what we see into flat, static images requires the use of illusionary tools like perspective, scale, and vanishing point. These tools are employed in varying degrees of success by artists, engineers, and mathematicians to depict our three dimensional in-motion world.

The optical art sketches represented in this document attempt to reduce these tools to their basic optical illusions. When successful this gives the viewer a pure representation of the illusion.

Line, simple forms, and white space are employed to produce illusions with visual depth, dimensional form, and implied motion.
This success of this work can be measured in the knowledge gained about optical illusions.

Applying this knowledge should make it easier to recognize and appreciate the use of optical illusions in engineering, math, and art.

Sketchbook is Volume 1 of a two book set. Volume 2 Paintings documents the ideas behind and challenges of interpreting the designs and painting the resulting optical illusions in oil on canvas.
