Optical enjoyment

[singlepic id=151 w=130 h=130 float=left]I would like to take a moment to celebrate and enjoy the coolness that is optical illusions. They spin your head out, baffle and confuse… but in a good way! I came across this poster and print campaign for the Seattle film Festival and thought it was cool in a Beatles Yellow Submarine kind of way.  It encourages you to come along to the Festival, sit inside a cinema and enjoy films that have the power to transport you somewhere else.  I think these posters are cool, but I personally love the craziness of optical illusions and how you will never ever figure them out no matter how hard you squint…genius!
