As soon as I made this one I wanted to post it, but if you remember the last post it wasn’t really an option. I’m not sure why I like this one so much, it’s kind of simple while still … Continue reading

This one is a big contributor to why I stopped posting. When about to color it I discovered I had to cut it up in pieces to contain the fills and gradients. I was still commuting by train back then and as … Continue reading

Randomly this turned into a LEGO mini-figure face. As I’m typing this up I’m pondering the bottom description. When I started out drawing these I bumped into having to explain what was impossible about them, especially to adults, which is why … Continue reading

Oh look, an impossible figure! Still not sure about that term in English, it’s pretty much a direct translation from Swedish. The other word would be illusion, but that seems so generic or ambiguous. In any case, long since I … Continue reading

I’m really getting behind now, I still have kept up making one illusion per month, minimum… eight years straight now (!!!), but me posting them has been more shaky :) Fence4 2014-08-31 Linework | Fillwork While the bottom parts sit … Continue reading

The gallery seems to have broken with one post, and now images are offset… it’s weird. It’s my own plugin so I’ll have to look it over sooner or later, it’s years since I made it though. A wonder it … Continue reading

This is an interesting one. It’s not impossible due to how it fits together, but because of the drawing order, what is on top of what. That has always felt a bit cheap to me, as it’s pretty much the … Continue reading
