The Art of the Illusion

In January of 2011 I was contacted by Brad Honeycutt of An Optical Illusion about an illusion book that they were working on, and it resulted in me getting a few pieces included in the project! This is the first time that my art has been featured in an actual book, so it’s a bit special to say the least :) I am very happy to have been a contributor! Below I am posting a few pictures of it, because pix or it never happened, right?

The book itself can be found on Amazon or by searching for ISBN 1936140713 or 978-1936140718 at any book store. The full title is The Art of the Illusion: Deceptions to Challenge the Eye and the Mind and the authors are Brad Honeycutt, Terry Stickels and Scott Kim.

A review of the book? Well, even with my special interest in this specific production and my general interest in illusions, I have to say that the foreword and the introduction of the book that recounts illusion art history and different types of illusions is very well written and I sincerely enjoyed it. The art prints in the gallery part are also of a very high quality and has pieces from a wide range of artists with many categories of different illusions. Additionally, as far as I can seen you can get the book for a very competitive price right now! So yes, if you have any interest in illusions or art in general, I warmly recommend this book :)
