I remembered drawing Penrose and M.C. Escher inspired optical illusion images to my math and history books when I was a kid, so that is why I was so drawn to revisit this concept and create something new out of it. I had so many different concepts and ideas to try out, but one idea was calling my name. The concept was to create an endless optical illusion with a sport theme. And I figured out that especially triathlon would be ideal theme for this image. Having three different stages I could create a really image with endless triathlon theme.

Here you can see the process of my image from sketch to final image. Hope you like it! Thank you Markus Aspegren for being my model!
