The Great Illusion
Open your mind's eye and enter a surreal world of art, sound and poetry to "unlock the secret path" to life. A song performed by a friend at Woodstock in 1969 inspired Florida-based Victor Kahn to create this intriguing piece of multimedia featuring 35 amazing paintings by Jim Warren.

Ever wanted to try life drawing but too embarrassed, no time, tired models, angles not quite right? Enter the interactive nude model with 360-degree photographic views in dozens of different poses for your tilting, rotating, painting, drawing or sculpting pleasure. Previews cost nothing.

In a netshell: Creative.

Draw Girl
See a pencil sketch transform to a full-colour, life-like image at 1000 times normal speed in this work of time-lapse art.

In a netshell: Quick on the draw.

Colour in intricate patterns in photographs and art images without lifting a brush, pen or crayon. This is paint by numbers, 21st century style. Simply select an image (by subject, difficulty, popularity), a Java applet will open in a new window (takes a few seconds to load) and click on the numbered colours to fill in. For a challenge, pick a complex pic and try to "beat the clock".
