The Cinque Terre, a string of rustic coastal villages along Italy’s Ligurian Coast has long been an inspiration for travel photographers. With plunging cliffs and dramatic vistas, the small towns are ripe for postcard perfect photography. But when Slovenian photographer Jaka Bulc traveled to the Cinque Terre, he immersed himself in a different side of the towns. The result is a set of timeless images that peel back the layers of the well-loved vacation spot.
Dedicated artist Paul Lung spends up to 60 hours sketching these photorealistic pencil drawings. A graphic artist from Hong Kong, Paul uses a 0.5mm technical pencil to draw everything from his family and friends to cats. His highly detailed work has been written about in newspapers like The Sun and Telegraph.
His work reminds me of another amazing photorealistic artist but one that uses a ballpoint pen, Juan Francisco Casas Ruiz.
