Illustrations on Photography by Johan Thörnqvist

Johan Thörnqvist is a Swedish illustrator. He created the work by drawing on photography taken only with a cell phone. On the right is the original photograph and his manipulation on the left.

I love these illustrations because this is what I see when I look at an object or landscape. There is this part of me that spaces out and someone has to pull me back to reality. I love that Johan capture what his mind was visualizing. Very intriguing. And all with a cell phone image. What a brilliant idea.

So, I encourage you to check out his site and possibly his social networks.

Pinterest– interesting stuff on here. However, I can’t read a lot of it. Just go back to your childhood and be amused by the pictures.
Facebook– this is in English.
Tumblr– English as well.
