Pencil vs Camera by Ben Heine

Pencil Vs Camera - 68

I’ve been watching this project by Ben Heine for some time now and thought it’d be great to feature some of his work here on dPS. Ben started his ‘Pencil vs Camera’ work in 2010 – it mixes drawing and photography to create some fascinating imagery.

Ben’s work has inspired many other artists who have taken up similar style of producing images – many times with no attribution back to him as the creator of the style.
