M.C. Escher Homage

This is a homage that I did to M.C. Escher back in college. I have always been inspired by his work. His attention to detail, amazing precision, and complex compositions have always amazed me.

    Nice work. Escher would be proud! I’ve always been drawn to his work, probably as a result of my engineering mind.
