10 - Pencil Vs Camera for Art Official Concept

Tetris feeling today... This is my last creation for "Art Official Concept"
(an art gallery in the Republic of Cape Verde). The crazy architecture
of this place reminded me so much of Tetris! By the way, the little
man in the middle won't get crushed if he escapes... hopefully... :)

Many thanks for your constructive comments!

>>> Review from THE DAILY MAIL for this picture: "Leap of faith:
Tiny men are seen jumping from block to block in this sketch. The
drawing makes the apartment blocks on the horizon look like the
computer game Tetris"
(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 original music).

    I love the concept of this whole thing, and the realization is even better. They're all incredibly well done. You should trademark this idea.

    This one is particularly funny as it is also related to the "Tetris effect" -- playing too much Tetris to the point that when you walk down the street you can't help trying to figure out how to rotate buildings to let them fit with each other.

    I love your style of art, and the comparison of real art to live shots which is a great style of art that I haven't seen before. Great work Ben!!!!
