Artist makes surreal optical illusions from thousands of tiny doodles

Cambodian artist Visoth Kakvei brings doodles to life by turning them into incredible, mind-boggling optical illusions.

Using pens and markers, the 26-year-old creative sketches tiny doodles of flowers, crystals, and other whimsical motifs. He usually spends some three to six hours making his compositions, each one often filled with hundreds – if not thousands – of these miniature images.

Even more astounding is how these doodles form a bigger picture – an optical illusion. For instance, one of his work’s depicts flowers swirling until there’s a black hole in the middle of the sketchpad.

“When every page of my sketchbook is full of nature, I’d always want to get lost in it. Would you?” his caption read on Instagram.

Fighting for the night. Once he's freed, the world will turn dark forever.

Now he’s taking his art to the next level by making combining traditional sketches with digital ones, making it really appear as if his subjects are alive.
