Until next time

You may be interested to know that the Penrose triangle is named for Sir Roger Penrose, a mathematical physicist who shared ideas with the famous Dutch artist M. C. Escher and the 1988 Wolf Prize for Physics with Stephen Hawking. But the shape was first conceived by a guy named Oscar Reutersvärd, who is so beloved in his homeland of Sweden that they created a series of postage stamps in his honor, making this triangle perhaps the best known example of math and art inspiring one another.

With the exception, of course, of Photoshop and Illustrator, which are themselves products of applied mathematics. For another take on the Penrose triangle, check out Deke's Techniques 331, which shows you how to render the triangle as a series of cubes. You can also check out one of my other Designs Deconstructed courses in which I show you, for example, how to create a retro-style comic book superhero or your own personal online avatar. And of course, I'll have plenty more projects for you in the future....
