Ramon Bruin’s New 3D Illustrations Spring to Life

Dutch artist Ramon Bruin, aka JJK Airbrush, continues to create optical illusion drawings that make animals and objects seem as though they’re popping off the page. The illustrator’s skilled visual effects transform flat surfaces into seemingly three-dimensional subjects. Bruin gives depth to the two-dimensional plane by meticulously adding shade and tone with various, common drawing instruments (pencils, acrylics, watercolors, etc).

The 30-year-old artist manages to create a believable universe filled with drawings that have come to life through his precisely mapped out anamorphic images. In fact, it can sometimes be downright difficult to decipher what element of the frame is just a drawing on paper and what’s actually real.

The self-taught artist plays tricks on the eye and the mind as he often spreads his three-dimensional drawings across multiple sheets of paper, making it all the more complex. From the right perspective, every element of his drawings are perfectly aligned to heighten the optical effect and confusion.
