British-Nigerian sketch artist Kevin Okafor photographs each step of his drawings, you get a glimpse at his technique, and it is impressive how he uses charcoal for the hair—he smudges it, and then with a pen eraser thinly threads and creates highlights. He also uses other materials such as Faber-Castell graphite and black colored pencils.
so so so cool
Firstly, his name is Kelvin Okafor, not Kevin.
I have been meaning to post this for a while, but never got around to downloading the pictures to my desktop so I could post a photo set. But now I don’t have to!
His website is here!!! GO LOOK AND BE AMAZED.

Spring 2005. I thought I was so cool, writing Chinese and utilizing leetspeak. Smh, middle school. (Taken with Instagram)
What a Face! - Joel Brochu
What looks like an image of a beagle is actually a high definition photograph of a 4’ by 1 ½’ board covered in 221,184 nonpareils sprinkles. At a distance of 16 feet, the sprinkles blur, tricking the human eye into believing that it is looking at a large photograph. Only when you closely examine the work do you realize that it has been created entirely with tiny spheres of candy. Taking 8 months to complete, only 6 colors were used.
