TILLA at the Beach

Joel Ydring, from Sweden, had a little fun with his daughter Tilla on a sunny day at the beach.  Using his mobile phone camera and the space available on the beach, he created this fun video featuring his daughter.  As the little girl runs toward the camera, you begin to realize that it is an […]

World For All Advertising Campaign

I originally saw this series of images on the homepage of  Optical Spy while searching for new optical illusions to post on this blog.  I wasn’t sure if this was something that they created internally, or if they were something that they had found elsewhere on the Internet.  It looked like a series of professionally-shot […]

Lifelike Portrait from Photograph

I am always amazed when a talented artist can create a portrait that looks absolutely lifelike.  This hyper-realistic portrait of a vibrant, young girl was created by an artist using a real photograph.  You would think that with a lot of practice, anyone could create paintings such as this one.  But, as we all know, […]

Three Girls on a Bench

At first glance, this might not look like much of an optical illusion.  But something is not quite right about this picture.  You may notice it right away or it may take you a while to discover it.  (full disclosure:  It took me some time to figure this one out)  So… can you spot what […]
