Drawing optical illusions, math equations, and other things that people stop to look at

Help me draw interesting simple things.

I've learned how to draw the classic Penrose triangle, the impossible cube, the Devil's Pitchfork and some other optical illusions but I'd like to expand my repertoire. (Think: whiteboard graffiti).
Complex math equations (like the limerick "integral z squared d z, from one to the cube root of three...") and things like the "power circle"
(the diagram derived from Ohm's law that shows power as well as current, voltage and resistance) count too.
Anything simple: line drawings, especially ones that can be filled in with color (like the Penrose triangle and cube) are a super-bonus. Thanks!
