Thanks to “Bad Jokes. Worse Drawings.” you know I’m great at drawing. And by that I mean I have the artistic skills of a 4th grade, underachieving boy. Here’s someone else who’s also pretty good. By that I mean, “Oh my God she’s amazing!”
I found out about her through a Jezebel article, but have since become a fan of my own. Erica Rose Levine not only draws all these unbelievably gorgeous and realistic drawings by hand WITH PENCIL that can easily be mistaken for photographs. She does this while juggling being a full time mom. According to her most recent Facebook page post, she “uses photos for the faces and then creates (her own) hairstyles and all adornments through different references such as actual living plants or pieces of jewelry.” She photographs the models with their hair tied back and then sketches the different looks from there. As a hair stylist, I’m in love. As a pretend sketch artist, I’m jealous and in awe. Go like her page and support her in any way you can. Then, check her out on Instagram if you want to be inspired by true talent and beauty.
