THE ILLUSION OF SAFETY
Taking optical illusions to a new level in tshirt design.

First: Don't strain too hard, just back away from your monitor.

Second: YES. This works even if it isn't on a monitor. I printed it out to make sure.

Third: Here is a link to a zoom of the goldfish

Last: A super special thanks to Phil for creating an awesome flash presentation for this that I didn't end up using. Unfortunately the swf compression altered the illusion and took away from what was ultimately the focal point of the submission, so even though it was super cool, I didn't think using it was the best idea. Sorry Phil!

Easy with the accusations Maxpayne. I posted a blog about this design a week ago while I was working on it. Furthermore, I submitted this design last week and it just now went up for scoring.

Aren't this optical illusion an old thing?
It's just now that it's been implemented into the Tee design.
I like it, I like this one better!

This is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much better than the other one of this kind currently up right now. If you're gonna give someone a brainache by wearing a ton of horrid vertical black lines, you might as well have one HELL of an amazing concept to go with it. I wouldn't wear it, and I don't even want to stare at it if someone else wears it, but I can't help but 5 this because it's so damned ingenious.

This is annoying down right!

I saw this up on his flickr, a LONG time ago. Nomad did not copy.
This is sheer brilliance.

$5 and print!

Oh shit this is amazing dude. This is probably one of the best illusion designs i've seen on this site during my scoring days. This is pure genius dude.

Also, get lost Maxpayne.

Thanks for all the good comments guys.

I never claimed to have invented optical illusions. But it's like saying I can't draw birds because if you google "birds" there are tons of pictures of them. I took an age old concept and developed it in a way I've never seen before by making it interactive.

People making accusations based on their own assumptions is so... ugh.

Anyway, great job on this! (And I didn't have to back away from the screen... I just squinted) ;)

I can't believe I've never run across this illusion before. I'm pretty sure it's just that you're the devil.

Oh man, I saw that Johnny Depp illusion a few days ago and I just thought "man, this will look GREAT on a shirt". And then I saw the other submission with the same idea and gave up. And know I saw yours and I'm SO GLAD that I don't even try to make a design based on this optical illusion cuz yours is

PERFECT!

Mind-blowing! Congrats mang!

ps: I know how you did it, but I'll keep it like a secret :)
