Photographer, Thomas Allen creates 3D art sculptures inspired by pop-up books and Viewmaster slides and they're really cool. This artist brings childhood stories to life with is innovative art form bringing a totally new perspective to these classic stories.

Implications - To create his artworks, Thomas takes illustrations from some of his favorite pulp novels and kids' books. Afterward, he turns them into rich and vivid 3D scenes. Surprisingly, his work really lends itself to photography. It's not hard to see how parents looking to bring their child's imagination to life would be drawn to artwork like this. Let's just hope that Thomas Allen decides to sell his works publicly one day.
