I can't help but to admire the technical prowess of Malaysian illustrator Monica Lee. Whether you are a fan of photorealistic art or not, and independently of the grid she uses to reproduce the photos, it's impossible to ignore her skills. Her control of graphite and paper is complete, like a human photocopier.

One of these is a drawing, the other a photograph by Marteline Nystad.

Monica Lee is a digital and traditional media illustrator from Malaysia.

You can follow her on Facebook and Instagram.

This is part of a series in which we are featuring really cool 2D or 3D illustrations and animations. If you are an illustrator or animator with high quality work, please drop me a line here.
