    Perplexi® Drawing Aid to Perspective
    "I know from experience that the methods artists use have a profound direct and
    instant influence on the nature of the work they produce."
     David Hockney, Artist/Writer

    The Perplexi ® is a visual aid to understanding dimensional concepts like foreshortening,
    perspective, and proportion.  It is a modern adaptation of earlier inventions developed around the 15th Century. Leon Batista Alberti created the "Alberti's Veil."  The grid concept was used by many artists, including Leonardo do Vinci [1452-1519], Jacopo do Pontormo [1492-1557], Michelangelo Caravaggio [1565?-1609] Albrecht Durer [1471-1528], and many other artists during and after the Renaissance.
