¡Feliz Cumpleaños, M. C. Escher!

AKA Maurits Cornelis Escher.

Born June 17, 1898. Died March 27, 1972.

He was a Dutch graphic artist who inspired hundreds of would-be art fans who would normally venture nowhere near an art book. I used to see quite a number of blacklight posters inspired by his work in my teenage years but nowadays I suspect such work is no longer popular with today's teens. Still, as you can tell from the above drawings, Escher did have a knack for drawing memorable images.
