Italian artist Alessandro Diddi is back with more mind-boggling anamorphic drawings that seem to be popping out of the paper. Even if I know that these are plain 2D drawings, my brain keeps telling me it's 3D.

These are very cool. But since in several of them the paper has been folded and manipulated, doesn't that mean these are no longer only 2D? These aren't flat images that appear to be 3D. For the Spider Man one, the background shadow is a real shadow as everything from the leg up is at a 90 deg angle to the flat drawing (watch the video to see how it's made).

The Apple one, appears to have a door added to the page, and the Alien one seems to be similar to the Spider Man one.
