I’ve been staring at these Linnea Strid images for the past 10 minutes, and even though I know that the Swedish-born artist is an illustrator, I still can’t convince myself that some of these pieces aren’t partial photos.

This is more a compliment to her unbelievable talent than anything else, however, and goes a long way to communicating just how uncanny her abilities are. Without a doubt, Linnea Strid has composed some of the most mind-bogglingly realistic images I’ve ever seen. Check out the gallery to see for yourself, and remember to keep reminding yourself that every single work is painted by the Swedish-born artist without any help from digital or photographic technology.
