A fan of Pencil vs. Camera on Day 120

Today was a nice lazy Sunday. I painted for a couple of hours before my back started protesting and then I just settled in with a good book and a glass of wine. Ahhhhhh.

I wanted to share Ben Heine’s work with you, I think it’s incredible. He has done a number of “Pencil vs. Camera” images that I think are just brilliant.

“Pencil Vs Camera is all about illusion, dream, poetry, magic and simplicity,” says Heine. “The challenge is to create a 3D-like drawing on a piece of paper; the sketch should be connected with the photographic background but it should also say a little story by itself. I always try to give symbolic meaning to my drawings so that the message goes deeper than the photo alone. The combination of drawing and photography is really a powerful way to express ideas. There are no limits because everything is possible; every single illusion can be created on the paper.”
