Pencil Vs Camera


Hello all you lovely blogging folk, how’s everyone doing this evening then? Having a fantastic week I hope. My own’s been a bit up and down; it started off super busy and positive until today when my usual yucky back trouble brought any productivity to an abrupt halt. Ah well - unpleasantness and pain aside, at least it’s given me a little time for some guilt-free blogging. And excused me from the remaining chores of the epic spring clean Himself and I began a couple of days ago. Silver linings and all that!

Anyhoo, I’m actually in the middle of preparing a post in response to a few queries I’ve had regarding photo texturing. It’s taking much longer than I’d anticipated, though, so in the meantime I thought I’d share these wonderfully imaginative ‘Pencil vs Camera’ images by Belgian-based artist Ben Heine. I was especially interested to read that this guy is actually a trained journalist who’s  “many years of graphic exploration, artistic experience and his very own vision of the world” led him to the career he has today.  It’s all a little inspiring for this particular unemployed hack :)

My eyes have trouble processing the cat picture. The double eyes seem to jump about.

These are fabulous. I had the same experience as JJ (above) with the cat. What an interesting and fun way of getting people to look at things a little bit differently!

I had the same problem as JJ and Lynn looking at the cat photo but that somehow made it all the more fantastic - as the owner of three cats it also got me wondering how he managed to line up his drawing against the cat so perfectly - mine wouldn't sit still long enough, else would be trying to chew the edge of the paper!

Ok. For starters my eyes aren't what they should be late at night. I read this late last evening and that cat picture - well, I figure I need to schedule an eye-exam visit PRONTO!! LOL Loved these pictures. So sorry, about your poor back though. You've really had it this winter, haven't you. But it's Spring - SPRING!! A reason to smile. Tra-la and all that rot....hee-hee Cheers, Kathy
