This wonderful illusion was created by A.Kitaoka i... »

Optical Illusion II

Optical illusions are fun. They are in different forms, styles and some images have amazing artwork. After the first article on it, I thought lets have some more mind-boggling images. Soulwax, the Belgian rock band, in its album cover has a hidden message in these two pictures.
