Pencil vs. camera artwork includes a photograph and a simple semi-realistic pencil sketch, when combining both the sketch and photograph something along the surrealistic occurs. Pencil vs Camera artwork is a [highlight-yellow] composition of two mediums [/highlight-yellow]which enables both mediums to blend into one another and borders along the lines of the surrealistic.

Ben Heine Calls it [highlight-yellow] imagination vs reality or drawing vs photography[/highlight-yellow]. It is a new concept invented and initiated by Ben Heine in 2010,  which  is full of magic, illusion, poetry and surrealism. Ben usually integrates an inventive handmade drawing in front of a realistic background; it represents the inter- connection between the viewer, the artist and the artwork. The drawing is always in black and white while the photo is often very colorful; this amplifies the contrast between two mediums.
