    Optical Illusions as Street Art


    To promote the new “Flying Snoopy” ride during the park’s 10th anniversary this March, Universal Studios Japan has Marcie, Lucy, Charlie, Snoopy and Woodstock crossing the street just like the Beatles did for the cover of Abbey Road. But it’s particularly interesting because the designer used perspective to create the unique effect.

    If they really wanted to do this correctly though, Lucy should be barefoot.

    Spotted on the Wooster Collective and the High Definite.
