Antique Time Spiral

    Prev Next

    Escher/Droste of an antiqued clock face. Done in the usual way. I just
    liked the textures and warm colors.

    strobists: 1/4 power Sigma EF-500 DG Super, diffused through white
    plexi to create the specular highlight (a poor homage to the lighting work of ming thein's timepieces).

    UPDATE: This image was featured on Boing Boing, Sunday, Sept. 26, 2010. Thanks, Cory!

      can I use this as reference for a poster? I'm an illustrator. It will be changed a bit, but I wanted to ask your permission first.

      @Jamie: As long as you give me credit and are not using it commercially, that'd be fine. Anything else and we'll have to talk about it. Glad you like it.

      It's fantastic!....can I use this as reference for a record cover? I'm a graphic design student. It will be just a university project and won't be published....of course I will write your name as photographer.
