Illustrating a Strange and Wacky World

Though we've all seen photography mixed with illustrations (see Ben Heine's Pencil vs Camera), we can't help but want to share more of it when we see it done well. Two teenagers from Belgium, Maxim Piessen, 16, and Ben Goovaerts, 17, have even made up their own word for what they do - calling it "Penpho" (or pen for pencil and pho for photography). "We're creating a mix of 2D and 3D, and that often leads to strange effects," says Goovaerts.

"Penpho begins where reality stops."
