ginetteginette

oh man, i almost thought you were trying to pass off google found images as an original shirt design! this in its entirety is a fucking optical illusion! you had me fooled for a second. amazing.

mgill52

WOW
people are gonna vote without thinking, but they shouldn't!

nonolarson

Haha nice one.

boostr29

haha...nice idea. :)

againstbound

Nice idea, not digging the colors, though.

Bio-bot 9000

a great idea that would benefit from some more work on composition, placement, and colors.

I can't give a good score to copy/pasted artwork. (Also, the proportions are off on the circles, making it not actually an optical illusion).

It's definitely not copy / pasted. All original illustration.

And the proportions are "off" because it's not actually an optical illusion. That's the point!

I hate you so much. People like you are the reason great Threadless designs get bad scores

so true, so true - definitely rework this with more ideas

staffell

i mean more optical illusions

joshamman

how is this a T Shirt design? its just a mishmash of illusions, randomly placed.

Ivantobealone

I love the placement, That's what makes it even cooler for me

ginetteginette

wow, so many people don't get it even though so many others have commented ABOUT people not getting it. does no one read comments when they score stuff?

lmao yeah. i totally got fooled. till i read the comments. i wonder how many votards are going to vote this down.

againstbound

What's with the idiots missing the point? Well, missing the point and then talking trash.

kadiraa9

haha!!

legendary.
cracking idea.
5 $

weirdpoopoobaby

Hilarious. Sometimes those captions on optical illusions end stupidly with statements like 'Look closely' or 'Are you sure?' which might highlight the joke (then again, I like the subtlety now.) I'd even appreciate if there was a completely nonsensical one in there, like 'Is this shape really a square? Look closely.' and it's under a picture of a kitten. But that's probably just me. Anyway, great stuff!

Wow Awesome!!!! I 5$$$$

This was one I had to read the comments at first for to be sure I wasn't doing the "votard" thing... phew! Glad I can give this an honest, good vote!!! $4 now, $5 if the colors were a bit different. :)

soulsilhouettes

Love it. It took me a little while :) I hope this scores well!

evan3

i dont see the rabbit or the young woman...
wait is that the point?

Dexter Spandex

sooooooooooooooooooo brilliant!
seriously, just as everyone else is saying, I was about to give you 1 for stealing shitty optical art from the internet, and instead I'm giving a $5!!
I bet this doesn't score nearly as highly as it should because a lot of voters might 1 it and click on without realising it's utter genius.

FRICKINAWESOME
4 designs submitted - Score now!

once again like many people here, i was gonna blow this one off as a complete imposter and hodge-podge of illusions we've all seen for years on end until the irony and wonder of what you are doing hit me! So good man, we'll all try our best to make sure people check this one out for a minute and give it a chance.

esskayeesee

Annoyingly clever. $4.

Huan-k

Great concept!

mgill52

I wrote on the blogs of people that were not getting it, hopefully they come back and rescore!

mezo

My brain just vomited.

LAST DAY FOR OPTICALLY DELUSIONING COOLNESS!!!

Bramish

Some people are idiots.

I initially thought it was just a bunch of well known illusions, but I certainly wasn't going to comment until I was sure.

This is genius.

thepants

clever, very clever. glad i read the comments though...i was sitting there looking at the shirt trying to figure out if you messed up the dimensions on purpose or not. "I know I've seen the young girl in that image before, where'd she GO?!"

Nicely done. That subtly probably hurt you by some voters. Let's hope not.

MrsBBC

it's a brilliant idea, im just not sure about the execution.
...the colours are horrible and the A and B look awful

Ritzany

Hmm...I can't decide how I feel about this. I really like real optical illusions and definitely get that these are not. It's just...they're so closely based on the ubiquitous internet ones and the face vase could conceivably be two people sticking out their tongues.

B 7

incredibly clever. I didn't get it at first

DesignbyProxy

Yeah I just think they are far too close to the others. You can do better. Plus the arrangement I feel is slightly awkward, it doesn't seem to have purpose, just kinda a modgepodge of objects.

DesignbyProxy

Sorry, let me clarify (you can do better to push your concept) I like the idea, but it's not quite there.

bsweber

underscored!

Ronin60

I agree, this deserved more.
Perhaps a lot of people thought it was just 'illusions on a top'.

evan3

rough score
if the title was more convincing, it would have scored higher...
maybe a re-sub?

mgill52

PRINTTTTTTTTTTTT!
