Tricking the eye with illustration isn't difficult—it's a simple matter of looking up the techniques on YouTube. But doing it well, with imagination, charm, and panache, is another matter entirely. See the works of Ramon Bruin for inspiration on nailing the genre. Whether he's making a castle perched atop a mountain, a couple of lifelike kittens, or any number of colorful characters, Bruin always keeps it fresh. He once applied his style to a stunning electric guitar to stunning results, and has since experimented with a series of painted boxes that look transluscent, but have magic encased within. Bruin even makes the fresh the genre of artists interacting with their drawings (instituted by MC Escher and perfected by Spongebob Squarepants).

Check out Bruin's work in the Instagrams below.
