For you fans of True Blood out there, we have a little teaser for you for the upcoming second season of the HBO hit vampire show.
The teaser comes in the form of a new poster for the second season which of course features a blood spill pattern, the show’s trademark image. Pay special attention though as the poster is much more than that (hint: it’s designed from the Rubin’s Vase concept)
Take a look and see if you notice anything cool about this and I’ll explain after:
Look closely! At first glance you may just see the blood but if you focus in on the dark sections, you’ll see the silhouette of a vampire about to feed from some poor lady’s neck. This concept is based off the famous Rubin’s Face, a famous optical illusion that allows for two completely separate interpretations of the same image. Here’s the original Rubin’s face image so you can compare:
Is it a vase or a pair of faces?
If you haven’t seen True Blood, think of it as Twilight strictly for adults. I caught the entire first season a few months back and I really enjoyed it. What made it even better is that its cast includes Alexander Skarsgård who is my preferred candidate in the running to play the character Thor in Marvel’s upcoming slate of films.
The second season brings back the main cast of characters including Anna Paquin as Sookie Stackhouse, Stephen Moyer as Bill Compton, Sam Trammel as Sam Merlotte, Ryan Kwanten as Jason Stackhouse and Rutina Wesley as Tara Thornton.
What do you think of True Blood and are you excited for the second season?
The second season of True Blood begins June 14, 2009.
