Thanks for viewing! This image started as a gray-scale digital painting that I based on a photo taken shortly before Lincoln's death. I then processed the image to create a woodblock-like halftone effect, which I did with C++ using the CImg library.

To better see the illusion, try blurring your eyes or looking at the screen from across the room.

music is: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart - Symphony No 40 in G Minor, performed by the Fulda Symphonic Orchestra, conducted by Simon Schindler.
