Negative Celebrity Pencil Drawings

A marvellous way of drawing, when the final image appears as if by magic.

Liam York is a British artist. He has compiled this project is in the following way:
 He draws his celebrity portrait in pencil. You will notice something a little strange about it...
 York then takes a photo of it and loads it on a computer, where he transposes the image making it a negative.
  Everything in the photo looks strange and spoilt except for the drawing, which now has blossomed into a beautiful portrait.

Clever and an amazing mixed media drawing, which makes the best of traditional art and software, to perform a very effective transformation.

If you have never seen this type of art, you are in for a treat with York's work. There are more examples of this technique have a look here: NEGATIVE.
