Great site, fascinating animations!! Thanks guys.

I never realised this picture had a regular design behind it. You'd never suspect it at just a quick glance. How did you find out about the design and underlying grids used for this picture in the first place? Did you ever consider applying the same grid to a different picture? Well done!

I think Escher's art was very talented and his art is amazing.

Very original approach and style. Great for cd artwork too.

Dear Dutch Man2004-10-13 22:17:16
I like the droste effect... please do more trippy animations... great when on mushrooms, acid also tends to make them enjoyable - yay...

Rudolf Misset2004-10-13 13:28:26
The original Droste design was made by Jan Misset. He was inspired by existing design, but Droste was his. Who contradicts this? (See message George Moorman, below.)

James Miles2004-10-12 00:02:46
Escher is amazing. His work will never be outdated. The animations on this site are awe-inspiring. Good job!

Greg Yeardly2004-10-01 15:54:25
I've seen some interesting floor patterns that incorporate Escher's work.

Peter de Wijs2004-09-30 12:00:15
Lovely animations! Always wanted to make such a thing myself but i've got too many other things to do. I'm sure there are many other pictures that can be transformed to an animation. See you!

Ellis Thomas2004-09-28 18:32:35

As an artist, I greatly enjoyed this Escher show. As a translator, I enjoyed translating the Dutch version of a book about Escher by Harrie Welles into the English language. The title of this book was: 'Playing with Continued Fractions in Escher's Garden'. I wonder if you know of the existence of this book. The book was published by Harrie Welles himself and only distributed to friends and colleagues but I think it deserves more official attention. Ellen Goldman

This art gets better with age. Imitators can try to improve the technique but won't improve on the underlying concept.

Scott2004-09-14 14:16:16
Thank you for the great work on this site. I found your site while investigating Escher's work. I am an animator looking to create an Escher-esk animation inspired by his tesselations. I am finding it difficult without a solid understanding of the math behind it. I like the concept behind the "loop", creating the Droste effect.

Pablo2004-09-14 10:24:09
Everytime i see this site!!! i feel the presure in my chest!

Samie2004-09-12 11:19:19
i love your paint

robin morris2004-09-11 03:56:01
I believe this was like most of mce's later work a woodblock print...I imagine he might have been able to work out the center but rather than have it get muddled Aas it gets smaller he quit at a certain scale. Thanks for this very fascinating site.

Verry good site! The Best!

madrabbi2004-09-09 11:30:15
I have very much enjoyed this excellent site. I greatly appreciate the accessible presentation of your work, as I am no mathematician myself! The overall style of your work is excellent and takes nothing away from the genius of the artist, but simply embellishes one's understanding of his unique talent. I hope you bring the wonder of Escher to many more people. Congratulations.

our project has been finished, just take a look at our article, sorry but it's in Dutch. Sorry in Dutch now, je moet dus de scriptie hebben van Yuri en Perry, hij is redelijk groot 1,2 mb, kan even duren dat je hem hebt gedownload, en het kan gebeuren dat sommige plaatjes niet goed overkomen, even afsluiten en opnieuw openen. Nog even ons doel van deze verdieping: "het in redelijk begrijpbare taal zetten van hoe deze invulling in elkaar zit." laat hier of via de mail weten wat je ervan vind!
