Illusions

 In A-to-Z Blog Hop, Blog

Remember those books that had the 3D pictures in them that you could only see if you focused your eyes just right? I swore there was nothing there until one day I managed to see the image, and from that point on, I had it figured out.

These drawings are even more impressive. They’re all by an amazing artist named Ramon Bruin, and you can see more of his work at his website. Each of these photos had to be taken at a specific angle for the 3D effect to show properly.Click on the image or a larger size.

    A favorite? I was amazed by each drawing for different reasons. The two that stand out to me the most are: 1)The stacks of books. That one is complex and has so much going on. 2)The other one has the two little boys in it. It’s so soft and yet 3-D and I did a double take when I noticed that one child is drawing on the other’s foot. Ramon Bruin has some real talent! Thanks for sharing these.

      I’m kind of partial to the fighter planes myself, but they’re all good. Thanks for stopping by, Kathleen!

    The desk picture is amazing! I wish I was this talented. They remind me of those people who draw on sidewalks and make you think there’s a giant hole or shark coming up to eat you.

      Me too! The weird thing is how those sidewalk drawings (and these) don’t look like much of anything unless you’re at just the right angle. Thanks for commenting, J’nell!

    These are amazing! Hard to pick a favorite, but I guess I’d say the pile of books,mostly because it is the most amusing, with the most quirky details. Like all that wonderful background stuff in Pixar movies that you have to really pay attention to notice.

      Good call, Lisa. Every time I look at them I get a new favorite. 🙂

    It’s a matter of perspective, isn’t it?
