Amazing 3D Pencils Drawings

Après un superbe projet d’illustrations, l’artiste belge Ben Heine revient avec un jeu de perceptions en 3D en n’utilisant qu’un crayon et une grande feuille blanche. Rien qu’en dessinant, l’artiste apporte une nouvelle dimension à une surface plane qui nous donne envie de plonger dans son univers en noir et blanc.

3D typography illusions that appear to jump off the page

3D typography illusions that appear to jump off the page

London-based creative Lex Wilson made a series of illustration experiments using typography, 3D art, and a lot of perspective. He uses the viewer’s perspective to create optical illusions of type that seem to pop in and out of the page.

What’s even cooler is that he illustrates these words by using stairs to give it the appearance of movement and height. There’s even a piece called ‘Life: a series of ups and downs’, cleverly going up and down with its various steps and ledges.

Intricate cityscape drawings done from memory by Stefan Bleekrode

Intricate cityscape drawings done from memory by Stefan Bleekrode

These cityscape drawings by Stefan Bleekrode are deceptively realistic images of well-known existing and imaginary cities the world over. Although drawn in a seemingly realistic manner further enhanced by the use of light and shade whenever possible, most drawings also present themselves as highly accurate architectural and perspective studies. All drawings he made so far were done entirely from memory and executed using ink and watercolour.

(fos) by (fos)

111 (fos) by (fos)

(fos) is the name of the first ephemeral installation by the multidisciplinary team (fos). It means light in Greek and melted in Catalan. In this project it has been represented by a skin that covers both vertical and horizontal surfaces. The protected facade of the vegan restaurant Rayen at Lope de Vega street in Madrid has been illuminated for 4 days and nights by more than 250ml of yellow tape, painted décor items, pineapples and… a lamp. A visual game between perspective and colored volumes that gained the looks.

Hyper-Realistic Artist Loops Himself into Infinity

Based in Indonesia, artist Veri Apriyatno creates the most amazing three-dimensional illustrations. His great success as an artist is evident in his extensive portfolio, which consists of a captivating collection of human forms drawn with intense detail. Apriyatno has produced six books about how to draw and he has definitely proven to be a master of the artform.

This series of hyperrealistic self-portraits mimic the style of artist M.C. Escher, where each monochromatic form continues from the previous in an exploration of infinity. It's often difficult to identify where the drawing ends and the real artist begins. Apriyatno uses just a pencil to build the shadows and textures that result in the photorealistic drawings. His blacks, whites, and grays create an exaggerated contrast and an extreme depth to the work, and the playful final results are inventive and powerfully striking.

Non-Photoshopped Anamorphic Illusions by Felice Varini

Paris-based Swiss artist Felice Varini's paintings are the kind that have one vantage point from which its completed form can be viewed in its fluid entirety. The artist's vast portfolio of anamorphic illusions presents a variety of urban paintings, both indoors and outdoors. His large-scale creations are geometric in their composition and redefine each three-dimensional space they are applied to in such a way that one questions their own vision.

Using basic shapes like circles and squares depicted in vibrant pops of color, Varini distorts the viewer's perception of reality. It's as though depth doesn't exist as each line and curve connects perfectly with the next, regardless of distance or shape. Of course, when one isn't standing in the proper position, the illusion fades into an abstract smearing of color. The fragmented pieces distort the optical illusion, turning its applied surface into a piece of architecture with a weird paint job.

Floods sweeping London away

Floods sweeping London away

As much as the iconic River Thames is often the subject of touristy ‘I Was Here’ pictures, it can also be a cheeky accomplice for snaps, so we’ve found out. Photographer Rupert Jordan stood in the waters of the river during low tide and placed his camera over the waves so he could capture these forced perspective images of London being swept away by floods. It’s a fine collection of London’s most famous landmarks — like the Battersea Power Station, the London Eye and the Parliament Building — looking like they’re in pretty deep trouble.

New tape works by Aakash Nihalani

New tape works by Aakash Nihalani

Aakash Nihalani’s style is recognizable across the wide variety of mediums he uses: minimal geometric shapes on a flattened visual plane, often employing different techniques of contrast and forced perspective to give the impression of virtual depth or movement. While his work ranges from digital to sculptural, his public interventions mostly require only tape or cardboard to create illusions that engage the viewer and surrounding architecture in a disorienting visual play.

Two-dimensional objects may seem to recede distantly, be seen simultaneously from multiple points of view, or appear impossibly to be superimposed in space.

For Islands, Nihalani forgoes his usually vibrant color scheme to create a series of site-specific works in high-contrast, monochromatic black and white. Along one wall, two distinct black masses resemble jigsaw fissures, submerged into the architecture. Elsewhere, neatly lined processions of geometrical forms seem to emerge from the wall and diminish into the distance.

The effects are illusory, activated only from certain points in the room, and appearing distorted or distended from others. Negotiating these perspectives guides the viewer through the exhibition, drawing them occasionally to the footprints of the artist, the precise stance and angle from which the process originated.

This Colorful Mosaic Is Actually One Photograph

This may look like four different photos stitched together, but it’s actually a real single photograph by Bela Borsodi that hasn’t been photoshopped or anything. Borsodi created the effect by meticulously arranging objects until they lined up perfectly. He filmed the process and took a photo of the same scene from a different angle.

Pretty awesome!

Putting today into perspective

Here is today

When you focus on all the small events and decisions that happen throughout a single day, those 24 hours can seem like an eternity. Graphic designer Luke Twyman turned that around in Here is Today. It's a straightforward interactive that places one day in the context of all days ever.

You start at today, and as you move forward, the days before this one appear, until today is reduced to a one-pixel sliver on the screen and doesn't seem like much at all.

Warped perspective photos by Michael H. Rohde
Michael H Rohde (5)
Michael H Rohde (5)Wondering how German artist Michael H. Rohde created this series of pictures? Rohde photographed each item individually and then arranged the objects into one composition, resulting in warping the viewer’s sense of perspective. A little dizzying.

Infographic: 160 Years Of Hurricanes Form One Giant Hurricane!

We follow our tropical storms like big game hunters on safari, watching as these monsters wake and go on a rampage, close enough to document every single detail, but far enough, hopefully, to never get caught in their path.

Click to enlarge.

But what of the larger view? What of the trend? How do these single storms relate to one another over time? John Nelson painstakingly mapped out every tropical storm documented by NOAA and NASA since 1851, and the results are absolutely spooky. It doesn’t take a meteorologist’s degree to spot the obvious: The storms converge to form a larger entity that looks strikingly akin to a hurricane, as if hurricanes are just fractals for larger hurricanes. Come to think about it, if you keep zooming out, you eventually arrive at our own galaxy, the Milky Way, which also spirals like a hurricane. Like, whoa.

“I hadn’t noticed the overarching cyclone-iness until others commented, the information just did that itself!” Nelson tells Co.Design. “I had spent some cycles looking for a map projection that did right by the structure of the storms while not being a boring old rectangular projection. This bottoms-up polar projection did a good job of indicating the continuous circuit of prevailing winds and helped illustrate the inertial flinging of things on a sphere, and was a refreshing and sort of trippy perspective I thought. The fact that it looks a little like a hurricane itself was happenstance and I was (not uncharacteristically) oblivious to it.”

Click to enlarge.

The view is uncharacteristic. Whereas most of us in the United States are used to globes that feature North America at the center (and upright, whatever that means!), Nelson shows us the earth from the South Pole, looking up. This alternate perspective, while disorienting at first glance, is actually highly effective at demonstrating how storms cross the equator--or more accurately, the fact that they don’t. (The equator is that black void in the middle of the storms.)

Of course, as Nelson’s earlier renders demonstrate, we wouldn’t have this freaky hurricane-in-a-hurricane view if he hadn’t considered the earth from a slightly different perspective. After all, a sphere has no set top or bottom, left or right. And acknowledging that fact, for the briefest of moments, we get a peek into the trippy, repetitious scale of our universe. We’re gonna need a bigger umbrella.
