Coffee Illustrations by Liv Buranday

Liv Buranday is an artist from Philippines who twists the meaning of coffee grounds. She uses it as the medium for her smart art works. All the illustrations are done with a help of a toothpick and sometimes garnished with other objects like leaves, berries, flowers and so on for an extra 3D effect. Feels like some kind of a way to meditate while inhaling the smell of one of the tastiest things in the world. Buranday publishes all her creations on the Instagram under the name livscreams. This style of art reminded me of the dirt art by Sarah Rosado previously published here.  … Read more »

Architectural Drawings of Butterflies and Nautiluses by Rafael Araujo

Rafael Araujo, artist from Venezuela, goes “old school” in his series of drawings called Calculation. All his work is technology-free, it’s done only with a pen, pencil, ruler and protractor. Rendering programs are capable of doing tasks like this in just few minutes, yet Araujo is really passionate about calculating math of his complicated drawings himself. Mesmerizing 3D illustrations of butterflies and nautiluses couldn’t be more beautiful. 

88 Still Images of the Same Building in Munich by Víctor Enrich

Víctor Enrich, architecture photographer from Barcelona, recently finished his new project called NHDK, exploring his own capacity to transform the anodyne tower of the NH Deutscher Kaiser hotel in Munich, Germany in as many ways as possible. He ended up with 88 digitally modified images, as he is also a piano player and piano has 88 keys. The project took Enrich 6 month until it was complitely done. “The main core of my work relies on 3D software in order to recreate a scene that I previously shot with my camera. I would say that I steal the geometry of a place via… Read more »

Real Goldfish or Painting?

This unbelievably realistic goldfish is actually not real, it was made by Japanese artist Riusuke Fukahori. Yes, you got it right, it’s not alive fish, it was created in real Japanese houshold objects. Fukahori was patiently pouring a layer of resin, letting it dry, then painting a little piece with acrylic paint, then pouring another layer, painting more and so on until a perfect 3D goldfish appears. “I didn’t invent resin and not the first to use resin. I am not a resin artist. I am a goldfish artist. I think it’s obvious which pieces are Riusuke Fukahori pieces because the imitators… Read more »

Mind-Bending Inception Maps of Manhattan

This is how a map should look like! The ability to be in a city and to see through it, is a superpower. London-based graphic design firm BERG London created these 3D, inception-like, maps of Manhattan, NY by curling up the landscape and eliminating the horizon. The posters, part of a set entitled Here & There, looking uptown from 3rd and 7th, and downtown from 3rd and 35th, are created using a combination of city manipulations in modeling software. The prints have made their way into MOMA’s permanent collection, they are both three feet tall and two feet wide (90cm x 60cm), and are available to… Read more »

3D Illusion Sketches by Nagai Hideyuki

Today we came along these mind-blowing sketches by Japanese artist Nagai Hideyuki, 21. The 3D illustrations looks so realistic, once viewed from the right angle, they seem to leap out of the sketchbook before your very eyes. The artist demonstrates the kind of sophisticated art involved to create these 3D images using just a pencil, along with the right amount of lighting, shading, and anamorphosis.

Holographic Sheets – The Future of 3D Modeling

A little more than a year ago, a video clip surfaced online showcasing  an extraordinary technology innovated by the fellows at Zebra Imaging . A 3D digital holographic print that can be used to display architectural models with a true three dimensional effect that would allow information analysis from every angle of  a certain design model, drawings are extracted from drafting softwares as AutoCAD or Revit and magically printed as 3D holography. Some of you maybe already familiar with this new technology, but it definitely deserves spreading. Watch the introduction video of their mind-blowing holographic sheets.
