3D Sketches That Pop Out of the Page

It's amazing how some brains are created to have the ability to draw objects that look as if they are popping out of a page. I can sketch but dimensions confuse me so my drawings are always flat.

My attempt to sketch Ryan Gosling some time last year (or was it the year before?) which, of course, doesn't do justice to the actor himself.

Ramon Bruin is one creative brain who can bring a page to life. 

Ramon Bruin, born in 1981 in Alkmaar, The Netherlands, graduated in 2010 at the Airbrush Academie in Lelystad, The Netherlands.

In 2012 Ramon made a worldwide breakthrough with his own invented style which he calls ‘Optical Illusionism’.

Optical Illusionism is a combination of drawing and photography. He creates drawings that come to live when photographed from the exact right angle.

By stretching the boundaries of Optical Illusionism, Ramon also invented his ‘Multi Layered Illusion’ style. The multi layered illusions are drawn on paper or multiple sheets of paper.  The sheets of paper are interactive with each other and photographed from an angle the illusion appears they are stacked on top of each other.

For the drawings Ramon  mostly uses graphite pencil, but in some pieces he also uses color pencil, ink or acrylics.

Besides drawing and airbrushing Ramon also paints. His style can be explained as a combination of expressionism and neo pop. His paintings are recognizable by the bold use of color and have mostly sarcastic influences.    

Ramon also still creates airbrush art on different objects like canvas, motorcycles and guitars.

Here are some of his artwork:

9 Organic Skincare Online Stores in Malaysia

Lately, consumers have been more conscious about the food/ drinks, products that we consume and use. Choosing what to consume or use can be confusing as researchers say one thing and then change their verdict a few years down the road.

For example, there have been lots of contradicting research data about palm oil, coconut oil, corn oil, coffee, tea, wine, and vegetables. Of course, we know that sometimes research is biased towards a certain countries economic gain. A country whose economic growth depends on coffee beans will, of course, say that coffee is healthier to consume than tea and vice versa, wouldn't you think?

So how do we decide what's good for us? Naturally, it's best to just use products that our forefathers (or foremothers?) have been using without any health issues. So it's about going back to basics without the extra preservatives and chemicals. Eat the vegetables that are grown in your garden like how our great grandparents used to do. No land to gro…

The Hunt of for the Milky Way Sabah- Day 2 to 4 Ranau and Kundasang

Day 2- Ranau

So hubby and I survived the winter of Tambunan, and we had a simple breakfast of nasi lemak bungkus which was served with a bowl of soup at Tambunan Town (it's a Sabahan norm to have soup served at every meal, we discovered). The group said they were heading to the waterfall about 30 minutes away after breakfast then will check out and head to Sabah Tea Garden, Ranau (where do they get their energy???).

I said we would join them at the waterfall after freshening up at the hotel. Our hotel bed had other plans. It enveloped us and refused to let us go until noon so I meekly messaged Emma that we would join them at Sabah Tea Garden.

After we free-ed ourselves from the clutches of the bed, we made our way to Mahua Waterfall where we were greeted by green and hilly landscapes before reaching a fairly lonely road (really I think we only passed one car on the way there). After a lonely 20 - minute ride, we saw about 20 cars parked at the entrance which is a huge difference …

Plan your next hotel stay in Johor Bahru at Austin Heights Golf & Hotel Resort

During my recent trip to Johor Bahru, we stayed the night at Austin Heights Golf & Hotel Resort which is located at Taman Mount Austin,.

I rarely stay out of Johor Bahru city when I'm there for work so I was curious to find out a bit more about the developer of Austin Heights as this area is newly developed and still being developed. (Austin Heights sounds something out of my Sweet Valley High Book days!)

The Austin Heights Group is a leading property developer that provides innovative, comprehensive and quality homes. The group offers a brand new lifestyle with the first-of-its-kind “no back-lane” cluster home design concepts in Johor, The “HOPSCA-inspired” Austin Heights township is now the Group’s flagship development with excellent take-up rates of its launches and all the completed phases have been 100% sold out.

HOPSCA is a buzzword used by real estate developers that refers to large-scale mixed-use commercial urban developments. It is an abbreviation of Hotel, Offices, …
