Ramon Bruin, a 31 year old talent from the Netherlands, has the ability to make his art leap off the pages at you. Literally. He has created a series of black-and-white illusion sketches available on his website, wherein he demonstrates a fine use of airbrushing and drawing techniques that create a 3D optical illusion of buildings, birds, leaves, dog-tag chain necklaces and more, all of which leap off the pages as though they were images in a child’s pop-up picture book. Or perhaps more accurately, as though they were greyscale real-life objects casually positioned on tiny piles of paper.

Bruin’s art is currently catching a great deal of media and online attention and has been featured on National Traveller, among other web-based publications. The man himself is a mostly self-taught, freelancing artist who graduated from the Airbrush Academie in Lelystad (the Netherlands). His website, JJK Airbrush, is home to his 3D optical illusion drawings and the rest of his designs.
