For those of you who have been following Bit Rebels for a while now, you know that I love to sketch. Every moment that I get the chance, I will sketch anything and anywhere. If you could get a glimpse of my notebooks, whether they are for work or play, you would see I have so many doodles in them. Sketching is really fun. It helps me relax and think freely. What you can’t put to words you can always translate to lines, shapes and symbols.
While browsing through the web, I came across some wonderful photo artworks that literally made me drool. They are amazing works of art by Ben Heine. He combines photos with pencil drawings and superimposes the drawings onto the photo. The collection shown here is part of his “Pencil vs. Camera” series. I absolutely love them!
