A couple of years ago this talented artist painted oil on canvas and drew halftone images with ink on paper. Now Bill Tavis creates stunning illusion GIFs with programs he has coded himself. What they have in common is the halftone style in which lines of varying width are drawn to create the illusion of a tonal or color image.
Tavis likes to express himself in different directions with visual arts. ”I think the mark of a true artist is someone that can create something beautiful given any medium – whether it’s oil painting with fancy brushes, or drawing in the sand with a stick,” he said in an interview for Ask Artist.
He also made an animation for symphonist Nathan Felix, which you can see in the videp in the bottom.
