Artist Vincent Bal Turns the Shadows of Everyday Objects into Ingenious Illustrations

Belgian filmmaker and illustrator Vincent Bal works within the confines of long shadows of everyday objects resting in the sunlight to create a wide range of whimsical doodles. The shadow of a film canister becomes a forbidding tower, or the filaments of a lightbulb cast a dramatic backdrop as a staircase for a daring escape. Bal makes many of his images available as prints over on Etsy, and if you liked this, also check out the works of Christoph Neimann and Thomas Lamadieu. (thnx, David!)
