i found another brainchild!
this is by an artist called ben heine, who has a project entitled, ‘pencil vs. camera‘. in this, he replaces sections of a real image with a pencil sketch – which either replicates the scene or adds a new element. [link]
this is what he has to say about the image below:
There is a baby in everyone of us. I actually wanted to draw the little child inside her head, but I finally decided to make it become the flower of an imaginary plant, still connected to the precious woman. Dedicated to Marta.
the original image is on ben’s flickr [link]
