Optic Illusions

by Christin Disi

Shingo Sato is the designer that I am inspired by directly. The way he manipulates the lines and patterns are what really intrigues me. His ability to remove the darts is something that I want to get in to. My artist is Craig Tracy.  He directly paints on the body to create optical illusions, some of the same illusions that Sato uses. I plan to use all the fabric I have at home. Mostly my traditional fabric, wool, and maybe some denim that I have. The other idea is to knit in the designs and use a yarn that looks like it has texture.

I think I accomplished what I wanted to. I am going to do more in the future and plan a little better of course!
