Nagai Hideyuki, a 21 year old artist from Tokyo, Japan has a very AWESOME series of 3D artworks…using only paper and pencils! They are exploding online, and for a good reason. His art actually defines the term “mind-blowing.”
His set up usually consists of two sketchbooks, at a 90 degree angle with one another [seen below].
One of my favorite things, a super cool trick is he incorporates props into his work. This inclusion of actual physical objects breaks down a barrier between his art and the ‘real world’. Also because he is brilliant, each art piece is from a different angle, or viewpoint…in this case it is extremely important to do something like this because these pieces can only been viewed from a specific angle. This keeps your brain more stimulated while viewing his art, making each piece even more original then the next.
