Beauty is in the Eye of the beholder

What !?

Why Many Introverts Are A Lot Like Sally from “The Nightmare Before Christmas”:


Maybe content to be alone more often then other people…


But still want to enjoy some of life’s social aspects…


You have this nagging voice in the back of your head…


And you’re curious about what other people do…


You are able to take care of yourself…


But still need a little help…


You feel like people don’t really notice you…


But some definitely do…


And you are grateful for that.

A message from one introvert to (hopefully) the others.

Singapore-based visual artist and art instructor Ivan Hoo uses colored pencils and pastels to create awesome illustrations on wood panels that are both photorealistic and anamorphic. Hoo’s meticulous drawings look so incredibly lifelike that, when the finished pieces are paired with the actual objects depicted in the drawings, it’s tricky to tell which is real and which is the drawing.

“By working on wood, it gives me a lot of dimension and ideas to create something close to reality and it works really well with pastels, too” Hoo explains. “I started to experiment on wood some years back with mainly portraits as my subject before going further with a different concept.”
