Video of the Day: Youtube Sensation Stefan Pabst’s Mind-Bending 3D Drawings

You may have seen these drawing videos circulating the Internet! Stefan’s 3D drawings are so striking it’s hard to fathom how he’s been able to master this technique and make it look so simple. We created a little compilation of some of his most mind-bending drawings and asked him a few questions about creating them. Watch the video above and read the short interview below!

Obsessive Cut-Paper Artworks by Artist Calvin Nicholls


Amazing work by paper artist, Calvin Nicholls. Carefully formed from an initial hand-drawn template, the haut-relief effect is achieved through a meticulous process involving X-ACTO knives, scalpels, scissors, glue, and of course, a whole lot of time. A single piece can take weeks, and for the more elaborate ones, years to complete! More images below.

Hayao Miyazaki Un-retires

Miyazaki1 Miyazaki2 Miyazaki3

Studio Ghibli founder and iconic animator Hayao Miyazaki is working on a 3D animation about a caterpillar named Boro! The only hitch: the ten minute short will take about three years to make. And once it’s finished it’ll be screening exclusively at the Studio Ghibli museum in Japan.

“I intend to work until the day I die. I retired from feature-length films but not from animation. Self-indulgent animation,” he said at the time in reference to his short films for the Ghibli Museum. He added then that while neither CG animation or hand-drawn animation is better than the other, he fears the latter is dying.

“I think talent decides everything. More than the method, what’s important is the talent using it. There’s nothing inherently wrong or right about a method, whether it be pencil drawings or 3-D CG. Pencil drawings don’t have to go away, but those who continue to use the medium lack talent. So sadly, it will fade away” – Hayao Miyazaki (source)

Mind-Bending Anamorphic Graffiti Illusions by Artist Odeith Appear to Float in Mid-Air


Lisbon-based Portuguese street artist Odeith has been playing with perspective in his anamorphic artworks for over a decade now. These incredible pieces could easily be achieved with 3D software but there is just enough imperfection to reveal the artist’s hand and give the paintings an incredible energy. Love to come across one of these in person.

Lots more images below.
