Even though Ramon Bruin has a degree in airbrushing, it’s his other skill that made our jaws drop. A Netherlands-based artist creates amazing 3D optical illusions all with an ordinary pencil. As he puts it, trying photo-realism was just another way for him to push his boundaries and add another technique to his portfolio.
A 31-year-old Ramon is mostly self-taught and impressively versatile: he can also paint and draw with acrylic, oil, water paints, charcoal, paint pens, pencils and graphite. Combining his 9-year experience in airbrush and knowledge from the Academy studies, Ramon established the JJK Airbrush company. It specializes in customized work only and declares that their sole purpose is “create kick-ass airbrush designs”
