What's In Your Garage?

4

These garage doors have special wallpaper on them to give the illusion that the owner of this home has a dump truck hidden within. I don't know about some of you folks, but in case I get bored of one image I would hope that these wallpapers are easily removable!

The Graffiti Stairs Illusion

4.5

At first glance this may seem like a real set of stairs, but alas, it is an illusion in the form of Trompe L'oeil. It wouldn't be posted here otherwise! This invisible set of stairs have been graffiti'd on a wall and floor in a very artistic way. The splatter-paint effect gives a nice comic-like feel to what otherwise would have been a dull white hallway.

The Pendragons' Metamorphosis

The Pendragons are two magicians, husband and wife, that went on the 2008 America's Got Talent show. The judge had something powerful to say to Mr. Pendragon, who once had an arrow go through his body:

"I like you...because you've suffered for your art and you're still standing here doing it."
