Recently several interesting new directions have emerged in computer graphics. These include the use of perceptual principles to display high dynamic range images on low dynamic range displays, and the emulation of traditional pen and ink drawing techniques to create illustrations that look hand drawn. In this special topics course, we will review this recent work. We will also read some classic essays on art and perception, and discuss how they relate to computer graphics. Finally, we will discuss how these artistic and perceptual techniques may be used to produce more effective illustrations and visualizations.
