Ben Heine is a Belgian artist, most known for his “Pencil vs. Camera” series. I came across his work while using Stumble Upon. The example of his work that I chose is from this series. I find it really cool how he combines the techniques of drawing and photography, and does so in such an interesting way. It would still be a great piece of art if he were to draw what he sees exactly and incorporate that into a photo, but he adds touches of imagination and humor along with his realism. His website is worth checking out. He has a lot more images from this series, as well as other works in other styles and mediums. There are also interviews on his site where he talks about his process for his Pencil vs. Camera pieces. Here’s his site:
