Pencil Vs Camera - TV Brussel by BenHeine Pencil Vs Camera - TV Brussel by BenHeine

____________________________________________________

Very quickly made, you can see a video report about the making HERE

It was a lot of fun. Just a quick sketch/demo but it was a small challenge,
because I made this "Pencil Vs Camera" image in a few minutes (I usually
spend MUCH more time on my drawings). I made this in the frame of an
interview with Tomas Teetaert for "TV Brussel". The report happened at
the "Gallery Garden" and it was broadcasted on "TV Brussel" the 18th of
February 2011. Many thanks to Anne, Guy and Tomas!

See the whole "Pencil Vs Camera" album

Update: See THIS VIDEO showing some 18 Pencil Vs Camera
images in progress (with a small animation and original music).

Flowers in my Sneaker

A poem by Katie Gabrielle

Flowers in my sneaker
Cuz my nose was getting weaker
My feel smell like a pasture
In the hot summer sun
So I picked some pretty flowers
Just for fun!
I put them in my sneaker
One Two Three Four Five
But when I put my foot inside
Two of them died
Flowers in my sneaker
How can they survive
I better get a bar of soap
Got stinky feet
I'm such a dope
Maybe flowers in my sneaker
Is there any hope?
Maybe put my sneaker
in the Gallery Garden
It seems!

WALLE is probably looking for this sneaker, sorry I watch a lot of movies, still I enjoy how your drawings can bring everyday things to life.

I Love how with your art you can feel the emotions and the expression the piece shows about it. After going through your Picture vs Camera gallery I am truly inspired!

I really like this series a lot. They're all very creative and different.

The only thing about this piece is that the drawing is a little bit off compared to the picture. Of course, this would be very difficult and time consuming, and I would never have the patience to get it that close, so I suppose I don't really have a lot of room to be talking.

Normally I never comment on your work, because I'm so blowed away by your skills and the fact that everything normally is spot on. If I comment, I wouldn't be able to say anything else than 'wow', which I don't feel either your or me can use for anything good. It's not really constructive.

Normally I'm so blown away by your precision. I especially noticed when you did the Camera Vs. Pencil - 44, or the car. I was absolutely amazed by your lines. The way you angled the car on the drawing and did all the details on the front and the mountains in the background.
I still can't figure out how you can get our drawings to fit into the 'real world' with such precision.
It really showed, that you aren't just an amazing drawer, but also an amazing photographer.

Therefore I'm actually a bit disappointed with this. I know people will hate me for saying this but of course no, I can't do it any better myself.
It seems like the shoe is angled wrong compared to the tip we can see in the background and the seat of the chair, to the left, doesn't fit in with the precision you normally have. And that is such a shame.

I know that you in the description said, that it was made very quickly and of course it will be better the more time man spends, but I'm always looking forward for your Pencil Vs. Camera-pictures which such joy and it breaks my heart a bit to see this when I know you can do so much better.

I don't know if you can use such a comment for anything, but I couldn't write a critique since I'm not a premium member.
But, what the hell. I still think you are amazing.

You got such a fragile heart.
Of course this is a joke.
Don't push the artist to what you think they can do always.
I mean... he was on an interview. I don't know how Ben works but i think its a place very more calm or at least with less attention to him, still I can see that this work is really not his best and maybe his worse one on this incredible series that i follow myself.
He might even thought to not place this on the whole series but more for pleasing, maybe he didn't even bothered himself to ask the camera man(?) to stand up a bit far away to get off of the shot...
My point is, don't make such a hard comment if there is no need.
This is mostly an unofficial drawing that he placed here so we could watch the video and know a bit more how he does his splendid job.
I don't hate you in any way, and I'm not someone that comments a lot on people art or other comments acting like that, i just thought that was necessary.

I understand what both of you are saying but sometimes simple is better. When I look at this drawing it brings me back to a simpler and happy time when I was a little girl, when it was ok to draw outside the lines and most of all I think this drawing reminds people that no one not even the artist is perfect and that at times it is ok not to be perfect. Besides I think this drawing really adds to the Pencil Vs Camera serious.
