You would be forgiven for mistaking these stunning drawings for photographs of people getting ready in the morning.

But Estonian artist Heikki Leis’ works are actually hyper-realistic drawings that show the ordinary morning rituals that everybody carries out.

I have pencil drawings of my (then very young) boys done by my sister-in-law, a surprise from my husband. They are incredible and I will treasure them forever.
She too did unbelievable work, and was all self-taught. I'm pretty sure she stopped doing them years ago.

It can be done in color too, which is also why any photo can now be faked .

Miss me?
