The most mind-blowing optical illusions of 2022

Having our minds boggled by optical illusions is one of our favourite distractions here at Creative Bloq. Optical illusions can delight us, educate us and just plain confuse us, and we've seen plenty of examples of all of that over this past year.

Over the past 12 months, we've seen everything, from accidental optical illusions to illusions intentionally devised to baffle our brains. From a double illusion with dots that appear to change and disappear to hidden faces, some were so good, they're worth revisiting again. Below are three of our favourites that continued to impress us throughout the year.
