NEW: I'm now making music, JOIN ME ON SOUNDCLOUD!


This is a real fire, a real drawing, a real piece of paper, real fingers...
only ashes are left :(

I took this photo 2 days ago and also made the very rough sketch.

This is dedicated to all the people suffering in the world.

Thanks for caring. See the whole "Pencil Vs Camera" album

Pencil Vs Camera

A poem by Katie Gabrielle

Pencil Vs Camera
A concept, you say?
What is real
What is art
Fire burns
Only tears
Tell the story.
Look carefully
Like ashes to
The flame
No Voice
To scream
I am a concept.
I am art.

What a completely unique mixed mediums artwork. I can't even tell you how really creative this idea is. But this one definitely stands out from the others like in in the series in my opinion.

Firstly, I know how hard it is to catch flames in a photograph and still maintain some semblance of a proper exposure, yours is beautifully executed, the drawing of the face is unbelievably funny because of how really traumatized the expression looks. I also like how it's torn out of a sheet of paper.

It reminds me of every woman who has torn her ex boyfriends image out of all her photos and burnt them in effigy. Think how enjoyable their experience would be if the pictures cried and begged for forgiveness lol

one quick constructive comment, (and I know you can't have a whole lot of control over this) but the way the paper folded as it burned seems to cover up the face more then I would like. The drawing is so good I wish I could see that little bit more of it. But that is 100 percent and opinion

overall I can't say enough great things about this very creative idea and well executed photograph. well done.

Paper Manipulation... what happens to folded or bent paper when it has its own shape?
