Dessins au crayon et illusion de relief - Ramon Bruin
Most of these drawings by Ramon Bruin seem relatively simple, but at the same time, because of their shadows and some intriguingly placed real-life props in the photographs, the sketched images appear to be almost magically leaving the bounds of the paper they’re drawn on… (via My Modern Met)

Fun with Foam Printing - Easy Tutorial I loved this idea because not only can you recycle these horrid polystyrene containers, but the process is really simple. You could even use tracing paper and trace your design so you don't even need to be able to draw. You could make a whole series of cards like this or just a colorful print to hang on your wall and cheer up the place.

Artwork © Marcello Barenghi Via Beautiful Life Amazing 3D Street Art Illusions by Edgar Mueller Who isn’t awed by the amazing 3D street art paintings of Edgar Mueller, and other pavement artists? They create illusions which use a public space, such as urban centers, town squares, streets and sidewalks. 3D pavement art is labelled as a type of performance art in that artists work in view of the general public and people passing by - and get to see their reactions. These people often participate with the art piece by standing near the edge as if trying to avoid falling in, and also pose for photos. The paintings are also temporary, and prone to changes in weather. Also take a look at the incredible anamorphic street paintings of Inge Wagner and Gregor Wosik!
