Ansel Oommen is a freelance writer, citizen scientist and laboratory analyst whose written work has been featured  in magazines such as Permaculture, ArchDaily, Well Being Journal, and Entomology Today. He began this technique while in middle school. The rapidly successive yet punctuated sweeps of this style evolved out of the boredom that was (sometimes) present in the classroom. The technique incorporates several principles of Gestalt psychology. By taking advantage of similarity, continuity, closure, and proximity, these drawings force the perception of figures that do not exist out of strategically and aesthetically placed lines amidst a blank background. Repetitive and curvaceous elements such as leaves, feathers, and scales work particularly well. He then often inverts the color of these images, further accentuating this effect on the viewer.
