Beautiful, Photorealistic Still Life Illustrations Made With Just A Black Pen
By Dorothy Tan, 09 Sep 2013
Australian artist CJ Hendry has an incredible talent—she creates oversized illustrations of everyday objects that look exactly like grainy black-and-white photographs made on a vintage film camera.
Using nothing more than a fine-tip black pen, she was able to create her beautiful drawings with a tedious dotting technique that requires the artist to be extremely meticulous and have a huge amount of patience.
Bringing out the light and shadowy portions of each illustration perfectly, Hendry has a penchant for luxurious fashion accessories when choosing her subjects, such as a pair of Yves Saint Laurent patent leather Oxford shoes—she has also made several drawings of animal bones.
Watch the video below to see the artist working on a lovely illustration of a Chanel handbag—or follow her on Instagram, where she documents her work.
