Pencil Vs Camera - 35



© Ben Heine || Facebook || Twitter ||

NEW: Prints now available!

I've made here a slightly more detailed sketch for this surreal composition on paper. The guy on the right is shown upside down, the head inside the pavement... The smaller tramway called "Gravity" in the upper right corner is overturned (see a detail/close-up here, showing the small tramway the right way). 12 balls seem to be in weightless conditions. The infinity symbol appears in the distant vanishing point. I took the photo near the Palace of Justice in the centre of Brussels, Belgium. The second title of this image is "This is Not Gravity".

>>> Review from THE DAILY MAIL for this picture: "Balancing act: Not even tram lines escape the artist's mischievous eye" (Kerry McQueeney, The Daily Mail, Sept. 2011)

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

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

I go my road of fate
Stronghold of my day
Its cry of timeless debate
On to the side way
To enter on to the dark
Once flowers were in shine
A glow like eyes spark
A shimmer of soul‘s define

Now here is drop of night
In carnations of mystery
Dark wings in deep flight
Ever so wandering free
Taking eyes to somewhere
Where silences are black
A song of nocturnal somber
Never to return back

O tongue of deepest tongue
Inside this closing abyss
Each night where we long
And enter the garnet bliss
Fountains of evening veins
I cross you mask of bleed
To twilight’s coming reins
In all your shadows mislead


Puffed up Dandy

A poem by Katie Gabrielle

Never stick your finger
In the electric socket
Or forget the change
inside your pocket
Never put your head
On the trolley tracks
These are the facts
It's dangerous to assume
You will survive the zoom
Of the trolley car
To crush you
Are you super man
I'm sure you can
An alibi is handy
When you are a puffed up dandy
With your head in the tracks
And your mind in the cloud
For crying out loud
Get out of the road
You silly toad
Because the train is coming
Are you in your right mind
Is this your trolley
Pull your head out of the tracks
It's right on time
Your trip to Pencil land
Is one of a kind...
