NEW: Prints of the above artwork now available for sale.


I've made here a slightly more detailed sketch for this surreal composition on paper. The guy on the right is shown upside down, the head inside the pavement... The tramway called "Gravity" in the upper right corner is overturned (see a detail/close-up here, showing the small tramway the right way). 12 balls seem to be in weightless conditions. The infinity symbol appears in the distant vanishing point. I took the photo near the Palace of Justice in the centre of Brussels, Belgium. The second title of this image is "This is Not Gravity". (The above photo has been shot with the Samsung NX10).


>>> Review from THE DAILY MAIL for this picture: "Balancing act: Not even tram lines escape the artist's mischievous eye" (Kerry McQueeney, The Daily Mail, Sept. 2011)


Update: See THIS VIDEO showing some 18 Pencil Vs Camera images in progress (with a small animation and an original musical composition)

Puffed up Dandy


A poem by Katie Gabrielle


Never stick your finger

In the electric socket

Or forget the change

inside your pocket

Never put your head

On the trolley tracks

These are the facts

It's dangerous to assume

You will survive the zoom

Of the trolley car

To crush you

Are you super man

I'm sure you can

An alibi is handy

When you are a puffed up dandy

With your head in the tracks

And your mind in the cloud

For crying out loud

Get out of the road

You silly toad

Because the train is coming

Are you in your right mind

Is this your trolley

Pull your head out of the tracks

It's right on time

Your trip to Pencil land

Is one of a kind...
