My optical illusions book order just arrived! It’s my ‘first look’ copy of author Brad Honeycutt’s new book: ‘The Art of Deception – Illusions to Challenge the Eye and the Mind’, published by Imagine! Publishing. I’m honored again to be included in this second installment which showcases innovative and mind-blowing optical art illusions by painters, sculptors, photographers, illustrators and, of course, street painters. A beautiful volume to share with aspiring artists, children, optical enthusiasts and just about anyone who loves a visual mind-bender.
Big thanks to Brad for including me in this new offering!
From the world’s greatest master illusion artists, including Guido Moretti, Tracy Lee Stum, Vladimir Kush, Rob Gonsalves and Bev Doolittle, to Istvan Orosz, John Langdon, Scott Kim, Oscar Reutersvard, and Donald “Rusty” Rust, THE ART OF DECEPTION is not just an ordinary collection of optical illusions. Author Brad Honeycutt has collected 200 of the finest deceptive images ever assembled that will excite both novices and long-time fans of illusion art. The spectrum spans from classic optical illusions to art that is “made real from the impossible.” This collection includes famous paintings, stunning photographs, and computer enhanced visual eye treats that will make your mind’s eye blink twice . . . and then smile. Every image was handpicked to feature a specific segment of the illusory spectrum that has one sole purpose–to illustrate the best artistic presentation possible. With commentary by the artists about their vision and techniques, this is an extraordinary book on the art and science of the illusion.
