Artist Creates Quirky Illustrations Using An iPhone And Some Paper

Anshuman Ghosh is a visual artist based in South Africa who creates quirky illustrations that revolve around his iPhone.

He finds suitable inspiration from everyday occurrences, common observations and more importantly, things that he loves. Each cut paper illustration casts the illusion that his phone is something that it is not, using brightly colored drawings that have been cut up and layered into these fun and newly transformed scenarios.

His vibrant ideas are both simple and clever, like two classics such as the Rubix Cube being sliced and transformed into a Tetris game or a paper being shredded into the iPhone only leaving the strips on screen. All in all his talents definitely will leave a smile on your face.

“I like to carry my idea notebook with me everywhere in case something inspires me. Once the initial sketch is done, I get down to preparing the illustrations and the paper cutouts which I arrange when I am ready to shoot. I use 160 gsm paper and a standard stationery kit to create the artworks. Depending on the complexity of the work at hand, it takes me between 2 to 4 hours to complete an artwork from start to finish. And given that I have a full-time day job to keep me busy, I am up until 1 AM every night finishing my artworks,” artist told Bored Panda.

It is Tuesday today and it basically means the weekend is right around the corner, right? And yes, I am sort of a “glass half full” kinda guy 😂.

Well, the hard-working folks at @deliveroo have spent years studying this curious phenomenon and call this condition “Miso hungry, me want to drink soup from my phone”-titis 😂. While it may not be possible or advisable to use your phone as some sort of soup bowl, it is possible to use the @deliveroo app to order your favourite soup anytime you want.

WHICH DRINK DO YOU RECKON I AM YANKING OUT OF MY PHONE (HINT IN THE CAPTION BELOW) Hello there! It is Thursday today and I can already smell the weekend.

I hear that the nice folks at @deliveroo are currently working on some cutting edge R&D to turn your phone into an ice bucket but since this kind of radical invention takes time, you can use their app in the meantime to order your favourite beverage and wait for the future with a cold one in your hand. So if you live in the UK, Australia, Belgium, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Singapore or the UAE, give their app a shot (check link in bio) PS: If you live in the UK and order alcohol from one of @Deliveroo's participating drinks partners during this week through the @deliveroo app, you stand a chance to win an all expenses trip to the home of wine: Bordeaux!

GAME OF THRONES | EPISODE 6 *SPOILER ALERT* I should get some sort of medal for holding out till Sunday to post this artwork inspired by what happened in the last 10 minutes of Episode 6 of @gameofthrones. The episode was amazing, don't you think? Given how many times the dragons have been shown this season, I'm pretty sure #gameofthrones has already used up all of its CGI budget 😂 – we'll probably only get close up shots of Cersei's horrible wig from now on. Talking about dragons, really sad what happened to Viserion 🙁. I would love to say he's in a better place but I'm not sure he is although I bet the Night King would disagree 😂. #whpimagine #art #arts_gallery #artist #illustration
