If you don't quite believe your eyes, you're not the only one! Yes, LaTeX can be used to create (and recreate) a huge variety of optical illusions, such as those shown in the examples below. Many make use of the excellent TikZ drawing package, and if you're looking for further inspiration you can find other TikZ examples in the gallery at TeXample.net.
