Art-believable!

just saw these pieces on yahoo and I thought I share them with you as I really liked the idea.







the collection is called pencil vs camera and you can check out for more on his website:
http://benheine.com/pencilvscamera.html

Where you can also find another collection called Digital Circlism which looks a bit like a mosaic. I especially like the Leopard.

And here we go, already copied by the "creative industry", a Renault add holding credits

Advertising Agency: Lowe Porta, Santiago, Chile
Art Directors: Cristián Kemp, Andreas Orellana
Copywriter: Gonzalo Baeza

but not Lisa Rienermann, who did the original for her studies...

But maybe she sold the font, comes up in other car ads as well.

There is a character in the TV series Six Feet Under who wants to be an artist and she did something very similar to what that guy called Heine did. Coincidence?

Ma question préférée: qu'est-ce j'vais faire de tout cet oseille?

just gotta dig out this thread again, as Heine combined well not paintings but drawings with photography

this is in Bilbao by the german artist Johan Lorbeer

A friend of mine does this kind of stuff with another guy. He takes a picture while other other guy does the painting.

Very interesting concept thanks, Jefe!

I root for the painted versions in the first three sets. But the final one--ah, sometimes the moon is better captured with a camera.

How you folks seen Jane Perkins' work?
