Past Drawings 6: M.C. Escher’s Up and Down

Up and Down

M.C. Escher Up and Down drawing

The original plan was to have ‘Up and Down’ centered on the paper with the imagery from Esher’s ‘Drawing Hands’ on the outside, but my hand cramped up from working on so many minute details…By far the funnest drawing I have ever done, but the most meticulous. Escher naturally created crisp lines and was a skilled shader. Maybe I will return and add ‘Drawing Hands’ to this down the road.
