London-based artist Gurekbal Bhachu uses pencil to create some of the most realistic-looking pieces we’ve ever seen. They look more detailed than an HD television. And after watching his insanely laborious process, it’s easy to see why. The man will spend hours on one damn mustache hair. But watching him in action is somehow soothing, and his God-like levels of concentration and attention to detail are inspiring. I also love seeing how drastically he’s improved in just two years.
Check out his work and process below and be sure to follow him on Twitter for more.
