I fell in love the first time I saw M.C. Escher's "Drawing Hands." It's just breathtaking how he was able to make the hands so realistic to the point that you can almost touch the ridges of the hands. It takes a lot of imagination and creativity to be able to even just think about this kind of art, let alone draw it out. The hands were drawn with so much skill that I was motivated to try it as well. My imitation of M.C. Escher is not nearly as well thought out, but this piece was a nice stepping stone to the kind of artist I've become.
