Ben Heine is a painter, illustrator, caricaturist and photographer. His many years of graphic exploration, artistic experience and his very own vision of the world have led him to his singular style.
Reading my letter before putting it in the envelope, I saw in transparency the television behind the paper. I then realized it would be great to make something similar in a single image showing 2 different actions.I went outside and Drew “Pencil Vs Camera 1″ which is very simple and shows 2 chairs with a small table. About ¼ of the scene is represented on the paper, the other ¾ happens on the photo.
So this is roughly how the project started. In my other “Pencil Vs Camera” images, I tried to introduce weird elements on the paper (such as dinosaurs, ufo’s, double pair of eyes…) to contrast with the realism of the photo.
