Art Wednesday: Paul Lung
Artist: Paul Lung
Born: Hong Kong
Hobby: Photo-realism drawing
It is hard to believe that these are not photographs - no they aren't, rather hand drawn using a 0.5 mm technical pencil, A2 paper and some lots and lots of time . . . each piece takes around 40 to 60 hours to complete. Lung never uses an eraser. Lung is not a full-time artist, the 39 year old is a trained graphic designer and draws in his spare time. He spends several hours every night drawing these amazing pieces of art. His series of cat drawings uses cats that he either owns or those of friends. I am sure he stole Ruby to draw as you will see below - they look and feel just like my kitty!!
Thanks to Dan and Clara for introducing me to Paul Lung - I love "meeting" new and very talented artists.
The drawings above and below could be my baby Ruby,
that is what her fur looks like and she often sleeps in that position.

And this is how he does his drawings - no full scale sketching.
