The new school year is well under way, for sure. By now, the allure of the shiny new school supplies has worn off, and kids are starting to settle into a bored routine quite nicely. Most of them are probably doodling away during class, and some of them may be creating some pretty cool works of art! Like this cool back to school art illusion in a binder…

school-art-illusion

I love school art illusion drawings! The creativity and artistic ability that these kids show when bored in school just blows me away.

The rings of the binder were used as a starting point for a pool ladder, which is definitely pretty cool! The binder rings themselves serve as the beginning of the pool ladder, and rings were added to look like water. Finally, the corners of the pool were drawn in perspective to for the rest of the pool.

No doubt this poor kid was day dreaming about warmer weather and sitting poolside instead of stuck in a classroom!

Remember when the black and blue or white and gold dress took the Internet by storm? Well, I think I just found the perfect bag to match that dress! Like the debacle with the illusion dress, this particular accessory has a good chunk of Internet users asking themselves “what color is this handbag??”

Take a look and see what side you’re on…

what-color-is-this-handbag

What do you think? What color is this handbag?

A picture of the bag was uploaded by Twitter user Taylor Corso with the caption “Everyone say hello to my new baby.” When someone commented about how daring her new white bag was, she replied…”it’s blue.

Chances are, you probably thought the bag was white as well. I know I did! But why?

It could be a combination of a few different things. First, the handbag is probably a very light blue color, making it appear almost white. The lighting in the photo could also be causing the bag to appear much lighter than it actually is, and it’s not uncommon for some stark white objects to have an almost blue tint to them in some photos. Finally, your screen could also be the culprit. Colors don’t always show true on all screens, so try looking at it on a different screen to see if you see a different color.

So, what’s your final determination? What color is this handbag? Be sure to leave your answer below, then head over to check out the lady with two different colored eyes!

Hurricane Matthew is forging its way toward the southern part of the United States as I type this. It is considered to be a very dangerous storm, and a handful of states in the south, including Florida and Georgia, have already started evacuation procedures in some areas. If you’ve been following the news or the weather lately, you probably already know about the storm headed inland. You may have already even seen today’s optical illusion.

I have to say, it’s a pretty discomforting one…

hurrican matthew skull map

This weather map was seen on a local television news station yesterday morning. Do you see anything a little sinister here? Like, maybe the giant skull that makes up the storm, perhaps?

I hope that this Hurricane Matthew optical illusion isn’t foreshadowing of devastating events to come. It’s a pretty wicked storm that is considered to be one of the strongest in nearly a decade. It has already killed a handful of people in the Bahamas, and now it’s on its way to the states.

My thoughts and prayers are with anyone effected by this storm. Stay safe, and may the gods be with you.

October is probably my favorite month of the year! Don’t get me wrong – I love spring and summer just as much as the next guy, but October is just…October! It has “that smell” to it, you know? That smell of summer moving in and the weather winding down. It means the end of long HOT days, and the start of crisp, cool days. It means, apple cider, pumpkins, and cinnamon. The gorgeous splash of colors on the trees—the reds, yellows, and oranges—all welcome in my favorite holiday…Halloween! I know it’s early in the month, yet, but I get excited about Halloween. So, I’m going to jump the gun a little and give you a pretty simple black cat illusion to think about today…

When you look at the picture at first glance, you’re probably thinking “hey, MOIllusions Girl—there’s no black cat illusion here!”

Alas! Look a little closer, and you’ll see that there is. Take a look again and tell me which way the cat is going. Is he headed away from us and looking to his right, or is he headed toward us and looking to his left? Pretty hard to tell, isn’t it??

Life has a funny way of working out sometimes doesn’t it? Sometimes, things aren’t always what they seem, nor do they turn out the way that you thought they would. And, sometimes, things in life just seem a little skewed. When I ran across this LIFE illusion, it just seemed pretty fitting…

life illusion

The skewed letters spelling the word in this LIFE illusion just reminds me of the way life in general goes sometimes. It’s confusing, contorted, and seemingly impossible. That’s just the way life goes sometimes, though, isn’t it. But, nothing is ever impossible and not everything is as it seems. Sometimes it helps to be reminded of that to get through the tough times.

Okay, so missing persons aren’t all that amusing in real life, I know. But, this missing person illusion is actually enough to give you a little chuckle perhaps. At the very least, it will make you think.

missing-person-illusion

In this image, there are 13 people hanging around. Go ahead and count them…

missing-person-illusion-1

Now, we’re going to do a little switcheroo on this image. We’re going to use the exact same image, but switch the sides of the top of the image around a bit.

missing-person-illusion-2

The left top side of the image goes up and slides over to the right, while the right side of the image slides to the left. Drop the original left top side of the image into place and take a look at our new image…

missing-person-illusion-3

Now count the people. Remember, this is the same image using the same people. You watched as we switched the top side of the image above. So, theoretically, there should be the same number of people, right?

But, when you counted the ones in the final image, you only counted 12, right? Where did the missing person go?? Look a little closer, and I’m sure you’ll soon be able to solve this stinky mystery…

Still can’t solve it? It’s okay. Don’t lose your head over it!

It’s just one of those times in my life where there’s so much going on that I can’t keep up. I feel a little like Mr. Magoo, actually. I have so much on my mind these days that even the simplest tasks seem like overly complicated brain busters. I’m talking about things like walking and chewing gum at the same time, turning the ignition off when I get out of the Jeep, and even navigating steps. All sets of stairs sometimes seem like a set of impossible steps.

impossible-steps

I’m not quite sure what would happen if I tried to navigate these impossible steps!

My first instinct is to say that I’d fall down them and flat on my face. But, looking a little closer at them, I realize that I wouldn’t fall down them. I’d walk right into the huge block. Because, there are no steps! Looking at the top of the image down, you seem to be following a set of steps. But, once you reach the very bottom, you can see that the bottom “step” is completely flush with the bottom of the block. The bottom step would protrude out past the block if these steps were at all possible!

Love these impossible steps illusion? Head over and see if this cat is going up or down the stairs!

There’s sometimes more than meets the eye to some images, especially optical illusions. Faces have always been a fascination of mine, so when I see good face optical illusions, I have to share! This upside down face optical illusion is just one such illusion…

upside down face illusion

Now, judging by the face in this image, what would you say this man’s mood was? He looks pretty happy to me. Why is he so happy? Who knows! Maybe it’s his awesome beard, or perhaps he’s thrilled with his new hat. Whatever the reason, he’s definitely having a much better day than his upside down counterpart…

face optical illusion

When you flip this image around, you can clearly see the upside down face optical illusion. And his mood is definitely the opposite of his happy go lucky friend’s up there! The upside down man here looks much more melancholy than his buddy. He’s definitely not having a good day, that’s for sure! I’m going to guess that it’s because his sweater is too scratchy around his neck, but who knows. It could be anything!
