Wonderful!

His art creates the illusion of realism like the picture is 'jumping out' of the paper. This technique is complicated and is hard to master, but this artist does it almost perfectly. He tricks the viewer into believing that the object is 3D when actually it's a drawing on a flat surface. Stefan paints full-time and works in his studio daily.

Even though my brain knows what has actually been done, my eyes still tell me there's an A-shaped hole dug out of the notebook.

These are all single perspective renderings. Unfortunately, the cannot be hung on the wall, or even observed from anything other than the one perspective that yields the 3d effect. Great for the internet, but to the great chagrin of this otherwise enormously talented artist, he - like his subjects - is trapped in photography.
