Forced Perspective 1

I've been keen to do some forced perspective items for quite some time now but I usually struggle to draw them. I found this simple technique and because it's mothers day I chose to write "KIM" (it's also easy to do in 5x8 font). This is item 1 because I think if I shade the letters it will be a lot more pronounced, and I'm also hoping to describe the technique I used to create this.

This is the same item that creates the illusion of raised and lowered lettering, while the actual sheet of MDF is perfectly flat.
