predict prints from fishbiskit & lionscc.
This is a tough one–tougher than most “style” derbies. Mimicking a style is one thing, but coming up with a surreal idea AND executing with Escher’s precision will be hard.
Ugh. What a tough topic. I predict that there will not be a lot of entries this derby.
Coming up with ideas is one thing, but executing them in a way that comes close to evoking Escher is another.
Gonna stew on this one… I have an idea I can’t conceptualize yet…
or a concept I can’t visualize…
My M.C. Escher lessons are some of my favorites I teach!
coming close isn’t the point, getting votes without getting rejectionated is. i suspect the rejectionator will be fairly lenient with on-topicness, as usual.
Lenient vs totally ignoring broken rules are two different actions… in my mind.
Predict a bunch of these:
Aww. Esch-er-Sketch would be considered pop culture. Oh well.
Infinity and optical illusions would be words I’d pick to describe Escher. I was always a fan of his stuff when I was growing up, so I’m looking forward to some neat stuff this derby. May actually pick up a winner or two.
Stop! You’re letting everyone know what I plan on making.
Damn… that’s gonna be hard.
Something like those trick buildings would be cool.
maybe not… that’s one of the hardest this artist ever did. I can’t even to think of what two animals i would use
This. Escher was an insane stickler for detail… I might have to go down the road of tessellation for this one.
This being Woot … bunnies and turtles.
in Argyle style.
Shush you’re giving away my genius plan
Can never get enough of those and don’t forget cats
Bunnies and Penguins OF COURSE!
So now we have a 4 way Bunny-Penguin-Turtle-Cat Tesselation Tranformation… in Argyle style.
This Derby should eliminate several, ahem, “artists”. You know the ones who do the same thing week after week. Good riddance.
