I really enjoyed the reading about The Astonish Me Problem because I think that we, as Graphic Designers, struggle with this problem. And I also think that we, as the public, struggle with this problem. I constantly look to do something new and interesting in my designs, but it's difficult to do. I enjoyed that most of the art shown in the article wasn't new, it showed me how some of this design came about. I just really enjoy the illusion that was created in these pieces of art and it make me want to use 3D in my art to make the surface more appealing. I think that the "fool the eye" technique is really appealing to the public.
