Shared Flame by Philippe SOCRATE

I recently received a copy of a new optical illusion book by Philippe SOCRATE titled Tous les secrets des illusions d’optique (which translates from French to “All the secrets of optical illusions”).  The book was published this month by Eyrolles in France.   Unfortunately, I do not speak French, so I was unable to read the text […]

Tribute to Rob Gonsalves

I am extremely saddened to have learned about the passing of one of the great masters of illusion – Rob Gonsalves.  According to his official Facebook page, Rob passed away on June 14, 2017.  I just found out about this a week ago when speaking to a mutual acquaintance.  I was fortunate to feature several […]

Good and Evil by John Langdon

This oil painting, created by John Langdon more than a decade ago in 2006, features two different interpretations.  At first glance, this is a painting of a man’s face with very big ears.  If you look closely, you may also see two different words incorporated into this ambiguous painting.  The man’s ears and eyes can […]

This conceptual illustration from Tang Yau Hoong was created for Economia, a magazine that covers essential issues, news and analysis relevant to the topics of business, finance and accountancy.  While the topic of the magazine may sound a bit dry, at least they hired Tang to spice things up a bit with this ambiguous illustration.  […]
