With great passion for airbrush, Ramon studied (2007 – 2010) at the Airbrush Academie in Lelystad (the Netherlands) and graduated as an professional all-round airbrush artist. In combination with 9 years of experience it resulted in the arise of JJK Airbrush.
Even though Ramon Bruin has a degree in airbrushing, it’s his other skill that made our jaws drop. A Netherlands-based artist creates amazing 3D optical illusions all with an ordinary pencil. As he puts it, trying photo-realism was just another way for him to push his boundaries and add another technique to his portfolio.
To create the pictures, Bruin uses a technique called anamorphosis It involves drawing a detailed but distorted image that appears like a three-dimensional scene when viewed from a certain angle. The artist adds a bit of dramatic touch by inserting hands, pencils and other props into the photographs of his illustrations, heightening the 3D feel. And voila! Meticulous as it might seem, the results are worth the hassle.
