Amazingly Realistic Pencil Drawings that Look Just Like Vintage Photos

Check out this vintage photo of a halloween party group portrait. It might be hard to believe, but it’s not actually a photograph, but a pencil drawing by 28-year-old Scottish artist Paul Chiappe. He creates insanely detailed artworks that look just like old, fading, blurry, black-and-white photographs from decades ago. The “photos” show family pictures, elementary school class pictures, and even standard yearbook pictures.

What’s even crazier is the fact that Chiappe creates his drawings on a very small scale. Some of them are as small as 2×4 centimeters, but all of them are the size of the tiny pictures you might find hidden in the corners of your grandma’s attic.
