ravelry Reena Meijer Drees Escher Lizard Knitting Pattern

I have been so enthusiastic about the Escher like picture yesterday, that I’ve looked for another instruction for something with Escher and ta-daa!: the Escher lizard knitting pattern ;-)
Looks great, doesn’t it? :)

Isn’t this Escher stripes art great?!
It must ‘simply’ been made from paper stripes or ribbons.

By the way, I have presented things with Escher already sooner.
And an entry about folded paper strips of equal width ;-)

I have presented the faux pysanky Easter eggs before and I find the pysanky Escher Easter eggs even more fascinating!
They are really made in pysanky technique, a kind of wax batik.

The Beauty of Brown Leaves

To tell the truth: I only like woods if they are green
Brown is boring!

At least that’s what I thought until I saw this picture ;-)

You live and learn ;-))

Photo Kaleidocycles

foldplay Photo Kaleidocycles

Once I had the Kaleidocycles book from M.C.Escher and I even folded some of the kaleidocycles, but then I never thought about it any more.
Until I found the page where you can let make kaleidocycles from your own potos.

If you want to see a kaleidocycle in action, look at the M.C.Escher Kaleidocycles the middle picture.
Or look at one of the videos in internet.
You can also read more about kaleidocycles or simply look at photos of them.

But best is making one yourself and to ‘spin round’ ;-))

Droste Effects

Droste Effects

While surfing I found one day images with a so-called Droste effect (examples at flickr).
I was thrilled!
And I wanted to do that too ;-))
At flickr I found the Droste Effect Tutorial where Josh Sommers explaines about everything.
One important hint: Read everything *thoroughly*.
I didn’t and spend a lot of time searching where my problems came from although everything was explained somewhere ;-)
More explanations can be found at Escher’s Droste Print Gallery and their discussions.
Here I took one of my photos and played around with the Droste effect. It was so much fun!
