optical illusion…in a mural

Give me a reason to paint an optical illusion.  For one of these I received a grant, and the other was a commission.

By the way I love arachnids, especially all the ways in which “daddy long legs” are different from spiders.  Additionally they make great subjects for huge optical illusions because they have bodies held aloft on comically slender legs that cast great shadows.

Roofs are an underappreciated surface for illusion murals, considering so many people who live or work above them…lets change that.

I currently have a few prelims for other great invertebrates to be writ huge.  It is exciting to experiment with creatures becoming optical illusions because there are so many unbelievable body forms that need to be rendered so huge to be seen.
