I've been wanting to do a piece dedicated to one of my favorite artists ( MC Escher ) for quite some time. I was in this industrial building... I looked up, and it was just too perfect. Staircases and what not going every which way... I just couldn't pass it up.

This is how I think Escher would view an average building... seeing the unique in the ordinary; which I what I strive for myself.
