Check Bev Dolittle's work. She is a Western artist currently working who
does hidden pictures. My students LOVE her work.

Here is my idea: I would like to do a project which I will title "Camouflauge"-each student will have to create an illustration which shows objects/items camouflauged (spelling?). Immediately I thought of insects on leaves but I would like to challenge them to include Surreal imagery or extreme realism. Magrittes paintings of canvases within canvases come to mind as a reference. I plan on having them work with rapidograph pens and ink. They will need to use hatching, cross-hatching, stippling, etc. and have the option of choosing to add colored inks. Ink washes could also be considered.
