The inspiration for this project came to me while considering how we perceive things and how that can differ from reality. I decided to illustrate this idea in a very lighthearted manner using three illusions and simple images.
The box is a Jacob's ladder and it contains one thaumatrope and two kineographs. All three objects are viewable through the use of thumbs.
The characters are humble illustrations, all named Bear, which are inspired by eccentricities and behaviors I find amusing.
