    […] These are not memes but not sure which thread to post in more here…graphy/?ref=nf […]


    Amazing!! so many ideas spring to mind while looking threw these, freaking awesome!


    These are amazing and fun! Thanks for sharing!


    wow. these are amazing, and really inspiring. keep at it – i’d love to see some more…



    Amazingly Creative Drawing Vs Photography? i don’t really see how this can be creative when u start by drawing on your photographs.. then amazing… sorry, have you learned how to fill a drawing with a crayon? i guess i never had a drawing teacher before (no mater for that but before telling that ur work is amazing try to take look around)

    (sorry i didn’t like ur stuff at all so…)

    to end, u should do something for the lights. it look so fake that i’m not even able to enjoy the intention.

    PS: one last thing. if you try once to be creative, don’t still banksy’s ideas 😉
    (ex: woman, painting, gaz mask) YO

    PSII: sorry 4 my english, frenchies…


    i just want to say these all pictures are mashmerising .


    its really cool but like someone else said, the drawings were done afterwards. especially in the moving shots like the one with the llamas etc. theres no way he could draw that and then get the animals back in the exact position he needed long enough to snap a pic. i think some were taken with his hand holding blank paper, and others had the whole hand edited in.


    He never said that he was taking the photos and photos of the drawings all at the same time, just look at the work and appreciate it! its art, its fantastic, and its brilliant! Leave it at that. Great work Ben!


    […] here are some neat drawing and photography […]


    crazily good!
    omg, absolutely creative. so huge talent!


    That charms and inspires. I admired the artworks. Your wonderful page taught me to appreciate more the creative work applauds the hot and sends best wishes. Thank you


    I wonder if these are derivative of “Paper Children” which are hand drawn paper cutouts that break the fourth wall. NSFW link:

    h t t p ://



    Imagination 😀


    This is very interesting and an awesome work i like very much…..


    It’s Fake, I mean the drawings are cool, and perfectly fit, but the picture of the place is not taken with the drawing, it’s taken apart, the made the drawing then take a picture of a hand holding the drawing on top of the picture of the place.
    I can tell because the light/shading on the place is not the same as the one on the hand.

    But awesome drawings =3

    Totally amazing. Great work 🙂


    this is outstanding i wish i could do that

    Showed this to my kids and they ran out to take pictures and draw. This is the kind of art that makes my kids want to mess around with art — thanks!

    The point is that he missed the point.

    In case you hadn’t noticed, iNNeRKaoS, all drawings are fake. That four-eyed cat isn’t real either.

    This is very interesting and an awesome break from all this crap-art I see. Just thank god no spaghetti-os were harmed in the making of this portfolo.


    This is getting tired. Should we mention also that they involve a camera, a pencil, probably an eraser. I bet the camera also has a neck strap, why don’t neck straps get any love?


    The first one could work without, but the rest would require different focuses for the background and drawing (combined with Photoshop at a minimum, if not completely fabricated).

    Lighting on the hand doesn’t match with the scene, even though they did correct for colour in some pictures.

    So, most likely the pictures were taken, then the hand/drawings were shot in a studio and edited in.


    While I agree that these are amazing, they ARE shopped. You’ll notice if you pay attention to the hands & that the paper isn’t exactly shaded and that the lines are clearly not photographed. Still, pretty cool.


    Ben Heine is a genious! 😀
    I watch him on deviantART.


    brilliant. absolutely brilliant. i enjoyed every bit of it. its really amazing, every single one




    I put a couple of these together and made it my wallpaper ^^


    amazing, I stumbled on this and I think it’s one of the few sites it brought me to where I looked at each and every picture.
    @m are you saying no one can have the same idea? or use someone’s thoughts and build on them? that’s narrow minded. art is still art even if the concept is similar, unless he took the exact same pictures and used them, then it can be called plagiarism


    Um, all i can say is: AMAZING!


    looks great.. but most of them are fake for sure.. the light gets the wrong direction.. sry.


    You go from 3rd person to 1st person in your copy (is it Ben Heine who has a degree in journalism?)

    Beautiful artwork!


    Truly unique, I think that is quite the inspiring collection. The one in heaven (near the bottom) made me chuckle



    @ effik

    It looks like a mix of how they were done. Most of them look like they were photographed first, and then drawn on. Maybe not though. I’m just saying this because the boat with people in the boat canal one looks a little too convient unless it was all staged. Either way—these are still pretty neat.


    really nice. I wonder if it drew on a PC or on paper and then photographed.




    Ken Josephson was doing this over 30 years ago while teaching at AIC. Probably the photographer/plagiarist (he/she) didn’t have a clue, or if they did, it makes it only worse.


    Wow – some of those are truly amazing. The four-eyed cat messes with my head – like my brain is convinced that I’m seeing double and it has to do something about it but can’t.
