I have always been a fan of Escher – his sense of perspective and composition is just amazing. This design is based on his 1953 Lithograph called Relativity that depicts a paradoxical world in which the normal laws of gravity do not apply.

I decided to put a twist on this, where the architectural structure is going through a ‘home improvement’ with the people giving it a once over with a coat of paint.

Please note that the colour of the paint depends on the colour of shirt the design is placed on. The example below demonstrates what it would look like on a yellow shirt.

    I’m a huge fan of Escher, and this is a great tribute to a truly amazing man. Very clever touch with the transparent paint.

    Nice work!

  • thanks Lund. You know as I was working through this design I grew more and more respect for this man. Seriously, I did a large component of this design using 3D software, and his perspective checks out!! Bloody amazing!!

    I’ve always loved Escher’s work and this adds another clever level to his genius idea. Love the use of tshirt colour as the paint. Great stuff Zomboy.
