This is another attempt at a movement illusion. They are hard to get right, its all in the tonal steps between the different colours. Are we seeing any movement people?


Meet Bomber, another teddybear portrait.

This one was done in pen and watercolour as a gift for a freind.

An origami crane pattern to accompany the boat pattern I have posted already. Next I need to do a land   themed pattern, most probably dinosaurs.

op art circles

Here's a collection of op art circles I have made. They are all heavily based on the work of  Akiyoshi Kitaoka

the two in the middle are spiral illusions - they are in fact made of concentric circles. The top and bottom images are sort of anomalous motion illusions (they're supposed to appear as if they are moving, try moving your head towards and away from the screen) - click on each image to see a larger version.

You should check out his originals - they are really trippy and the science behind the optical effects is pretty interesting. zammo!

eye thingy

A cheesy eye thingy made whilst fiddling in illustrator and photoshop.

Inspired in a tangential way after looking at this site >

Its a bonkers looking site for a Japanese Professor to put up his eye bending optical illusions.

fun with QR codes

Today I have been having fun with QR codes. what a baddass invention.

I am most impressed by how much buggering about they can take and stay functional.
