Teabo: Block Party, colored pencil.
"Block Party", 22" X 30"

A pyramid forms where three large cubes meet. A triangle is formed in the background because of the cool tones that form the triangle sides of each of the pyramids. Viewers can elect to focus on the cubes or to focus on the triangles. A figure is inside each diamond shape of the sides of each cube or triangle.

 

 
     
Teabo: Block Party, colored pencil, (detail).
"Block Party", 22" X 30", detail.

A detail of "Block Party" illustrates the many figures that make up the sides of the cubes and triangles. This detail also helps to illustrate how the dark corners of the cubes give the illusion of a triangle. On the other hand, if one focuses on the light corners of the cubes, one will perceive cubes instead of triangles.

 

 

 
     
Teabo: Holding Pattern, colored pencil.
"Holding Pattern", 14" X 17"

The background of "Holding Pattern" consists of overlays of all colors that were used in the foreground. The background colors are layered so that the viewer perceives the illusion of movement of the main form frozen in space. Figures roam freely on top of the form.

"To Each His Own", 18" X 24"

This drawing is the first in the "boxed" series. The viewer looks down upon the stacked cubes.

There is one figure in each section of the cubes... except one section which is empty because the figure is next door at the neighbor's space. When viewed under a fluorescent light the patterns of cool cubes from left to right emerges. When viewed under an incandescent light a vertical pattern of warm cubes emerges.

The cubes in this drawing are slightly larger than the cubes in, "To Each His Own"
