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…

Decorated with Mercedes-Benz Stylo's signature colour red, huge flowers, a wall lined with an assortment of single sofas and chairs for guest photo ops and a gold cage in the middle of KL Gateway's centre court, guests were ready to be enchanted by the fashion collection inspired by NEUTROGENA® HAPPY SKIN.
Prettily dressed guests were first ushered to an area where sleek Mercedes-Benz cars were displayed to be admired while they nibbled on hors d'oeuvres and ordered Red Bull served in glasses. At 7.30pm, they were then invited to go the third floor where the fashion show was to be held.

NEUTROGENA®  products were strategically placed at the entrance of the draped show area for guests to try. Beauty Consultants were ready to assist guests with any skincare concerns they may have.

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, …
