Typepad Import Image

There are plenty of artists out there fusing illustration and photography to create mixed media artwork, but Flickr user, Ben Heine’s approach is a little different. He takes photos from his own catalog of work and redraws portions of them by hand using torn paper. He then overlays the drawings over the photographs and makes another picture. The result is a stark comparison of realism and abstraction. Some of the images are simple, but others depict more outlandish scenarios, like his four-eyed cat and the city being destroyed by a gun-toting dinosaur. Ben is constantly uploading new material to the set, so check out his Flickr page to see the results.
