anamorphic drawing, pencil, with photographic source, 1979
This is a cylindrical anamorphosis. In the sixth form, I was inspired by an older student called Edward Johnson. He had great artistic ability, and I think it must have been he who first showed me anamorphic art. Anyway, I bought a book about it, and soon produced my own anamorphic images. The source for this image was the front cover of 'The Observer' Sunday colour supplement. I remember scouring the colour supplements for any image I found interesting and / or could use.
