Giant daddy long-leg mural on a Seattle roof

Seattle-based artist and science illustrator, Marlin Peterson, was commissioned to paint a mural in his city. Rather than paint a standard wall mural, he chose a roof of a building right underneath the Seattle Space Needle. Using an optical illusion technique called trompe d’oeil, Peterson painted two giant daddy long-legs on the roof of a building. The monstrous bugs look as if they’re taking over the building when viewed from above, and the Space Needle makes a great location for viewing Peterson’s terrifying mural.
