Paul Lung and his pencil


From Beautiful Life:


"It’s hard to believe but these pictures are not photos but pencil drawings.


Their creator is 38-year-old Hong Kong graphic artist Paul Lung.


A 0.5 mm technical pencil and A2 paper are all he uses.


He doesn’t use an eraser and spends up to 60 hours sketching out his pictures.


As he often admits, people do not believe him


and he has to make videos of his work


to prove that these art works are not photographs."

Here's the only video I could find of him drawing (along with a few videos of him filming what I assume are his cats for inspiration).

http://hk.video.yahoo.com/video/video.html?id=537611 (The change is a bit more dramatic if you pause the video at the start, and then let it buffer, so you can make your own time lapse by skipping ahead. A bit blurry, but very impressive, and gives you an idea of why these take 60 hours!)

And here's some more pics of his drawings: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/culturepicturegalleries/6121429/Artist-Paul-Lung-spends-60-hours-sketching-photo-realistic-pencil-drawings.html

Certainly wowed by the images.

You wouldn't happen to know where we could find those videos, do you?

On youtube, all I found with his name was one video clip of some of his images, and for some reason, a few cooking videos....

I'd love to see a stop-motion or time-lapse video of his work. Nobody is going to believe me when I send these images to them!

...of course me, Joe, I'll always give you the benefit of the doubt. : )

Where can we see the video? My daughter doesn't believe it.
