Name this image artist

Here is a series of five images that all contain some kind of visual trickery or effect: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Does anyone recognize these images or know who the artist may be? I'm assuming they are all by the same hand, which may not be true.

I haven't linked the site where I found them because it has lots of ads and pop-ups, etc., and who knows what else, but if you are curious, you can see the address on the photos.

Response by poster: Wow, Orb! You're amazing! Thank you. Thank you. I'm so happy to see that are many more to look at. I have to go out now, but if I had time I'd make a post about him.

... If anybody feels in the mood to put it up, please do!! If not, I may try to put something together at a later time.

If you like these paintings, there's an elderly European painter named Curt Frankenstein (his real name!) now living in Chicago, who does very similar stuff (and a lot of cheesier pictures, too, unfortunately). In the realm of visual punning, I wouldn't be surprised if Frankenstein weren't this guy's inspiration.

It's mentioned in the biographical info that orb posted above, but the work has a certain whimsy that reminds me of Magritte....taz, y ou might want to look for some of his work as well.

It's always nice to know all that art education of mine isn't going to waste. Now if I could just find some way to become wealthy with it. :D
