If you a a regular visitor to designswan, you probably find we are a big fans of Ben Heine‘s work. Since April 2010, when The Belgian artist first launched his his incredibly creative series, Pencil Vs Camera, we began to keep following his brilliant work. Heine melds his love and passion for illustration and photography to come up with pieces that stretch our imagination. Today, we are to feature some new works from Heine and click here for his full [portfolio on deviantART].
Background of “Pencil Vs Camera“: Pencil Vs Camera is all about illusion, dream, poetry, magic and simplicity. 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. Heine always tries 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.
