South African artist Jono Dry creates awesome large-scale pencil drawings, many of which are a beautiful blend of photorealistic style and surrealistic subject matter. A completely self-taught and very meticulous artist, Jono sometimes spends months on a single piece in order to achieve such an astonishing level of detail.

The top image is a wonderful tribute to M. C. Escher’s famous 1948 lithograph Drawing Hands. Entitled Creation, Jono modeled the hands after one of his mother’s hands and one of his own.
