Sushant Rane, a 19-year-old living in Mumbai claims to be a self-taught artist. He draws hyper-realistic illustrations of everyday life objects – bulbs, spoons, scissors, coins and is currently a student of Bachelor of Arts at the Ramnarain Ruia College, Mumbai. He usually takes about a day to finish one illustration and what he draws is likely to make you fall out of your chair! Here are our six favourite illustrations by Sushant, and of course, they are related to food:
1. Cola Bar
Cola bars bring back memories for all of us. Remember not returning the change to mummy and saving it up to grab a Cola or an Orange Bar after school? Looks like Sushant has some memories with our lip-smacking cola bar too.
2. Sub Sandwich
A healthy option to eat out, Sub Sandwiches are a favourite for their variety and customization. This illustration just makes us all want to grab one, doesn’t it?
3. Soft Drinks
In this heat of summer, what better than a cold can of soft drink to beat the heat? Sushant’s illustrations remind us how to dispose of these properly, but are these for real?
An all-time favourite and easily available snack. Need we say more? Looks like Sushant was munching on a packet himself while drawing!
We could use the broken egg for making an omelette, or just treat ourselves to the half fried. After all, eggs are our favourite breakfast item. Can we really eat these beautiful ones?
We just want to open this jar and dive right in for some divine indulgence. Wait a moment, can we really?
Sushant says that he uses Copic Markers and Graphite Pencils to draw these illustrations and sketches on a blank piece of paper. These are then photographed, the combined effect of which creates an optical illusion of sorts.
