Here is a new pattern design project. You can find this how-to in my new book "How To Draw Incredible Optical Illusions" [you can preorder or buy this book from Amazon US or Amazon UK]

How-To
1. Divide a square into radial segments in order to yield perfect black radial beams as shown below.
2. Then rotate the square 45 degrees and make an alignment of the same.
3. Fit to the first row another alignment of squares that has been mirrored.

 
Continue the steps 2 and 3 above until you obtain a large enough pattern, as shown below. Eventually, when you shift your gaze around this pattern the small dots appear to sparkle!
 
If we rotate each square of the pattern around its central point, new amazing patterns are created!
Why not animate the rotation of the squares and render an image sequence with an infinite loop? The effect can be hypnotizing! I hope you enjoyed my how-to project! You can contact me through my website giannisarcone.com.
