Made by a Belgian artist known as Ben Heine, the Pencil Vs Camera concept was created way back in 2010, April, and went ahead to capture the minds and hearts of many individuals across the world. The artist’s passion and love for the mix of photography and illustration is obvious, ending up creating pieces stretching the viewers’ imagination by far. Heine, the artist, describes in a nutshell the Pencil Versus Camera as a means to simplicity, magic, poetry, dream and illusion.
He sees the challenge as the creation of a three dimensional illustration on paper and connecting it with the background of a photograph. While the illustration and photograph must connect, each should tell an individual story in a way.
