Our first optical illusion artist is Guido Moretti. In addition to showcasing some of his amazing sculptures, we have an exclusive interview with him. What caught our eye about his work is some of his sculptures, which look like two different things, depending on what direction you are looking at them from. Here's one example, view more sculptures inside...

Wow! It will look like the diamonds on the top are much darker than the diamonds on the bottom.
Perfect and printable! This is a very strong optical illusion, and is even noticeable in the small image to the left. Doesn't it look like the top row is considerably darker than each successive row?
Moving Red Spiral
Sometimes, while I'm just playing around in Photoshop, something appears, as if by magic. This illusion was one of those that just jumps off the page.
It's a large red spiral on a purple background that appears to jump and move. Works better for some people than others, but if you like the moving illusions, you'll love it! Although this small image might move a bit as you read these words, the larger versions are even better!
