It’s hard to believe, but the unique artworks you’re about to see are not photographs – they were all drawn using a single pencil! Just like Juan Francisco Casas who uses a humble BIC pen to “take” his photographs, this guy also doesn’t seem to need a camera to achieve photorealism.
Paul Lung, a Hong Kong-based graphic designer doesn’t even use an eraser in his beautiful drawings – all he needs is a 0.5 mm technical pencil, A2 paper and some time… Well, about 60 hours for just one of his black and white drawings! (I don’t want to brag, but I could do the same thing in a minute with my camera).
His pencil drawings are so photorealistic that people often don’t believe the pictures are not actual photographs. Paul even has to document his work process in order to prove his exceptional skills and drawing technique.
