3-D Pencil Sketches Leap Off the Page

Self-taught Dutch pencil artist Ramon Bruin has taken art to new depths. His drawings bring new life to what would normally be just a piece of paper. Like the work of M.C. Escher, the pencil drawings pop out in an optical illusion and play with viewers' eyes. From a Clipper ship that sails across a table to a man playing tug of war with a pencil, the illusions he creates are endless and something to behold, with a little bit of comical flare for humor. Here is a select few of the artist's drawings, and to see more visit his website or like him on Facebook.
