Seriously, we promise that’s not an a 3D-image. So how is it done? This video of another floating fish drawing shows you the way artists play with perspective to create the illusion, which involves cutting out parts of the paper to create a “new” sheet that contributes to the effect.
That’s very helpful, but it still doesn’t answer one question about the purple fish drawing: are those cans in the background also part of the image? How can a flat piece of paper be covering them up? Is this drawing much bigger than we think? Are the cans a separate drawing?
We’re not sure, which only makes it better. That’s why this is yet another optical illusion that got us hook, line, and sinker.
