Ben Heine has convinced me that drawing on a picture doesn't always ruin it with his 'Pencil vs Camera' series. Art and photography literally collide here. Just like McDonald's, I'm lovin' it.

'Pencil vs Camera' is the freshest series of photos I have seen in some time here at Trend Hunter. Drawing certain scenes on a photo is an ingenious way to enhance a picture that would have been run-of-the-mill otherwise. Photoshop had better watch its back: Ben Heine is the new sheriff in the photo-enhancing town. Stats for Sketchy Photo Mashups Trending: Older & Warm
