122. Pencil vs. Camera
Artist Ben Heine created these modern trompe l’oeuil pieces. What a fabulous idea.
I love the whimsy of the pencil drawings. They are appropriately realistic, but not so precise as to pretend to be an extension of the photographic medium. Many of them are silly sketches superimposed upon the photo. Others are just reinterpretations of what the photograph could have been.
Below are some of my favorites. I tend to prefer the pieces that aren’t necessarily trying to be funny, but instead putting something into the photo that wasn’t already there.
Nicely done, Ben. Very creative, and I’m a fan.
