Shoe to Wave Tessellations


I was fascinated to see this tessellation masterpiece of Oscar’s. It is a nature themed artwork and it clearly displays his brilliant ingenuity and talent. I find this tessellation artwork of Oscar’s fascinating because of the gradual transformation of waves into shoes and vice versa. Oscar has created this twist with his tessellation in order to stupefy the spectator.

Hello My Name is Adnan Optical Illusion


When I had my first quick look at this picture, I thought that there was nothing special about it. I was curious what the optical illusion was, so I gazed at it longer and was surprised to see it moving closer to me as I winked my eyes. The words are zooming out and I was absolutely flabbergasted.

Crossview Helicosphaera Radiolaria Polycystina


In order to view this stereograph, I used the “Crossview” technique (this means unfocusing your eyes while looking at the object).  In order to observe the screen comfortably, I did this at a distance of about 50 – 60 cm away. As a first timer, I found it weird.  When I do it correctly it makes me a bit dizzy. Over all, it is worth trying because the results are truly amazing! You will know you are successful when you see a third image identical to the first two. Good luck.

3D Sketch of Poking Out Pencils


I was stunned when I saw this drawing. I wasn’t sure if the pencils were really poking out of the page or not. The shading is excellent – it appears very 3 dimensional. I wonder if I could also learn how to draw like this. Alexander’s sketch has taken the 3D drawing to the next level. It made me curious to know the techniques he used to make the pencils jump off the page.

Although several of the artists are often seen in books on optical illusions, we now see many more and many for the first time for me.

Statue of Liberty Seashells Mosaic

I was totally mesmerized upon seeing the mosaic of the Statue of Liberty and was amazed to find out that it is made of different kinds of seashells.
