Dutch artist Ramon Bruin, aka JJK Airbrush creates incredibly convincing anamorphic illustrations that don’t stop at simply giving the illusion of being 3D, they appear to come to life and interact with their clever creator.
The artist’s skilled hand crafts imaginary three-dimensional worlds on two-dimensional platforms adorned with props like pencils and other art supplies used to create each image.
Bruin also adds a touch of whimsy and humor to his creations that aids in their believability while providing an entertaining image. His expert level of understanding of the various mediums he works with (pencil, watercolor, acrylics, and oils) is his secret for now, though. When asked by a fellow deviantART user to share some of his techniques, Bruin replied, “Perhaps I share some later. Right now I’m focussing on mesmerizing you all.”

The White House and NASA want the public’s help in hunting for asteroids that could potentially smash into Earth. They’re also looking for a perfect space rock to capture so that astronauts could go there and study it.
“Nanotechnology engineers from Princeton have 3-D printed an ear from calf cells and silver nanoparticles that picks up radio signals at frequencies beyond human capacity. The creation is part of their greater plan to one day build spare parts for human cyborgs.”
Life Hack of the Day: Turn an IKEA Stool into a Kid’s Bike
IKEA instructions can be difficult enough to follow as is, but what happens if you didn’t follow them at all and made something else instead? Samuel Bernier and Andreas Bhend spent two days reverse-engineering the Swedish furniture company’s FROSTA stool into a kid-sized bike. According to the duo, the handlebars feel “a bit stiff” but the wheels “roll like a dream.” Wanna make your own? Check out Bhend’s step-by-step modification instruction on Instructables!
