Wicked new teaser poster for 'True Blood' season two

05.11.face.vase HBO's new teaser campaign for the second season of True Blood is work of trippy art that's reminiscent of the "vase-or-faces" drawing that psych professors show their students.

The show returns June 14. Here's the dual-image True Blood poster: 

True Blood season two

At first all you see is the blood. Once you spot the figures, you can't stop seeing them. Ready made for billboards that get commuter traffic. There's two other posters in the teaser campaign using the same image but with "Ready to Be Bitten Again?" or "Ready For New Blood?" as the tagline. Think "Ready For Seconds?" is the best -- the most punchy and gets the second-season message right in there.
Grade: A
