How-To Video: Equations of Life Poster

So I have written before about how I love the Simon Morden trilogy that has started hitting shelves. Samuil Petrovitch is my favorite kind of snarling sarcastic anti-hero, and a genius rocket scientist to boot. My kind of guy. And I especially love Orbit for letting me be a bit daring with the cover design and rock these really graphic optical illusion covers.

So what you don’t know is that the initial design was even crazier. I wanted to hide the cover text IN the optical illusions. Slight legibility problem, I admit, for a teeny book cover…but FABULOUS for a poster. And since I know you guys love these how-to videos, I screen-captured my process so you too can make your own Editable-Text Optical Illusion Poster…and melt the retinas of all your friends. After the jump you can even download the Illustrator file I used, and add your own text.

Click HERE to download the poster file (Adobe Illustrator or comparable vector program required.)

And make sure you go HERE and enter to win one of ten posters we’re giving away!

Last but not least, don’t forget to pick up EQUATIONS OF LIFE (out now), THEORIES OF LIFE (out in May) andDEGREES OF FREEDOM (out in June)…don’t you love the 3-in-3 month trilogies? Instant gratification…

    Awesome idea! It’s a head breaking concept for me though. Kudos to the maker of this.
