Are you ready to have your mind blown?! The best optical illusions can really make you see things that aren’t there without you realizing it, but you can also make your own. Today, we’ll show you a few optical illusions you can try out to fool your friends and family. Let’s have some fun! First, pause this video on 0:52 and tell us whether it’s a photo or not. Did you get it right?

Then, we’ll show you how to craft a very original picture (or pictures) of yourself. Check it out! After that, we’ll teach you how to create your own optical illusions on paper. We’ll start with a few simple drawings, like a cube that has floated out of the surface. Next up, a mind-boggling picture of a flight of stairs. Have you ever tried drawing a Penrose tribar and failed? We’ll show you how to draw one! Finally, you’ll learn how to draw shadows to make it look like an egg is floating.
