For every good, there is evil. For every life, there is death. And for every superhero, there is a villain! Artist named Simon C. Page has taken the idea that heroes and villains are deeply connected, and turned it into art using his own variation of the Two Faces and a Candlestick optical illusion. The posters, which there are only two of so far, can be ordered through his website and would definitely look right at home on any fan’s wall. Check out the posters below of Spiderman Vs. The Green Goblin, and Batman Vs. The Penguin. The trick is, can you see both good and evil in both posters? Or just one? What if you turn them upside down ???
The Cassini spacecraft has made the first observations from within the radio aurora of another planet than Earth.
“Whereas the source region of Earth’s radio aurora has been studied by many missions, this is our first opportunity to observe the equivalent region at Saturn from the inside.

The cause: Massive underground water torrents created by tropical storm Agatha. Continue reading
These unbelievable chalk drawings are created by Julian Beever and Kurt Wenner. The illustrations become illusions when looking from the correct distance and exact angle. Viewing from any other position will make the artwork unrecognizable. This genre of art in its raw form has been practiced since the 16th century formerly known as “Aux Trois crayons”. With the passage of time it has evolved into something very unique and amazing.
Julian Beever is an English, Belgium-based chalk artist who has been creating trompe-l’œil chalk drawings on pavement surfaces since the mid-1990s. His works are created using a projection called anamorphosis, and create the illusion of three dimensions. Kurt Wenner is from Ann Arbor, Michigan and along with chalk illustrations also creates public and private commissioned oil paintings, murals, sculpture and architecture all over the world.
Here is a collection of our favorites from these two entitled 15 Awesome Chalk Illustrations by Julian Beever and Kurt Wenner.
