Every now and again, we come across a piece of art that we can’t even begin to wrap our heads around. These sketches by Nagai Hideyuki are the perfect example. The 21 year old artist from Japan creates drawings that seem to leap out of the sketchbook before your very eyes. It’s amazing to see what can be done with just a pencil and paper and the right angle for capturing a photo. The way he uses lighting, shading, and anamorphosis to create these 3D images is reminiscent of MC Escher but even more mind-blowing.
