Your eyes aren't deceiving you, those delicious-looking items are actually drawings. Artist Howard Lee has mastered colored pencil wizardry so well, he's even willing to put the real thing and his work side by side. Lee's videos have logged hundreds of thousands of views on YouTube, but his latest compilation shows just how talented the guy is, especially at replicating the look and lighting of food (not to mention food packaging).
