How to Draw a Hole: Optical Illusion:

The Impossible Cube is similar to the Penrose Impossible Triangle, which I have also made a video of how to draw. They are both impossible objects if they were real 3D, but as 2D drawings they are quite simple if you are carful. It is an interesting shape to draw I think as the optical; illusion still works at an early stage. I found when drawing the Impossible Triangle that the key is to make sure the back vertical line needs to be to the side of the front vertical line!
