Optical Illusion

This project was to create a story containing eight events connected. “The Expedition.”

This brief was given during Christmas time, and I wanted to take the nativity story and create illustrations to suit the brief. I decided to go black on white, simple line drawing inspired by artist Adrian Tomine for this task. Almost every Adrian Tomine’s work is simple black on white. After visiting his official website, I decided to use black lines on white paper as my final piece.

I wanted to make my work interactive and made optical illusion cards out of it. The idea was to make the illustration visible and invisible by moving the card side to side. A combination of screen print and laser cut was in for the final piece. I used an iPad and pencil to draw and Adobe Illustrator to create the optical illusion.
