This Barbie optical illusion genuinely surprised me

Optical illusions come in many forms, but I actually think this one is the most entertaining. Themed on the hot topic of current popular culture, Barbie, this illusion is a little like another we recently reported on (see this Ken optical illusion) – it's even made by the same artist, but this time it stars the main character herself. 

Created by digital artist rishi.draws, who uses their skill to astound us by drawing optical illusions using a stylus and tablet, this illusion (called an 'afterimage' illusion – more on that later) genuinely surprised me. This one is a strong contender for our roundup of the best optical illusions.
