Sparkle Illusion by Gene Levine

Believe it or not, the Sparkle Illusion was inspired by an automobile.  You might not see a car in this image, but the basis of the pattern started with a graphic of the front grill of a Lexus.  Gene then manipulated the grill graphic to create the pattern below.  Finally, he incorporated the stars with […]

Squaroo by Gianni Sarcone

Here is a new optical illusion from Gianni Sarcone that I found while browsing his Red Bubble portfolio.   If you haven’t visited it, I would encourage you to do so as there are a lot of great designs to admire. With respect to today’s optical illusion, there are a couple of things going on. First, […]

Stereogram designer Gene Levine was playing around with some different pattern designs the other night and came up with this one.  As he looked at the pattern on his monitor, he noticed that he could not get the “targets” to stop moving and that he had inadvertently created an optical illusion with apparent motion.   The […]

Two Red Snakes

The two snakes appear to be in motion even though this image is completely static.  This another terrific example of an anomalous motion illusion created by Professor Akiyosh Kitaoka.  His illusions are very popular on this site, primarily because he creates some of the best motion illusions in the business.

Tick by Akiyoshi Kitaoka

This is an interesting motion illusion that Professor Akiyoshi Kitaoka created back in 2010.  When you simply look at it, you’ll just notice a series of different-colored square outlines.  But if you use your scroll bar and move the image up and down, something interesting happens.  As the actual image moves, the square insert also […]
