16-Year-Old Artist Draws Amazing 3D Optical Illusions In His Notebook

Posted on Other Stuff 79

Ever felt that piece of paper is limiting your creativity? So did artist João A. Carvalho, who has decided to use another dimension and blur the line between his drawings and reality.

That kind of skill takes years and years to master, but you know the best part? He’s only 16! Last year we covered the beginning of his project, and he kept himself busy since then.

The 3D effect you’ll see in his drawings is achieved by a clever use of notebook lines. João draws them across the page and then adds shading to make them pop out. This combined with well placed physical objects around the drawings make them step over the boundaries you expect them to fit in.

3D glasses? No need for them here! You’re all set to jump into the gallery.
