The close to ‘more than photorealistic’ paper and pen drawings my Australian artist CJ Hendry are almost too good to be true. On first glance one really thinks that her works must be photographs or even better, real shoes or bags or skulls. But on the second glance and keeping the large size in consideration, one realizes, that this has to be a drawing.

The details are overwhelming and sometimes they seem to be more real than the actual photographs of her source material. Check out this video to see her artistic approach.
