Re: ideas for perspective?

There was something I was going to try that my colleague did. It was
called fantasy chessboard. You drew out a chessboard in one point
perspective, planning out all the squares carefully. Then on the board
they are to place objects in connection with a theme (ecological,
political, etc. something you can start a discussion about) in proper
perspective placement. It was an idea found in Davis' Exploring Visual
Design. Hope that helps.
