One of his most popular videos, with 17.8M views, documents his process of drawing a lemon with the final result almost indistinguishable from the actual subject. Another video with 25.5M views shows him drawing a Haribo sweet, so realistic it seems like you could just pick it off the page.

According to the tags in his posts, Franek switches up between Prisma Color and Caran d'Ache pencils to etch his creations over hours, and hours... and hours. He even as a little pencil graveyard as a tribute to the crayons that served him so well.

For us, it's the ability to create that ulra-realistic glossy shine on his work that stands out the most. This pencil drawing of a paint blob may have taken three hours, but just drink it in... it looks wet-to-the-touch, thick and acrylic. This is some serious skill.

The chocolate dripping onto this strawberry is glistening. It's not pencil on a page, it's warm, liquid comfort and it looks so realistic we're feeling... hungry.

Franek has taken this talent to the BANK, and has worked with clients including Fortnite, HP, Genshin Impact, and Xiaomi. You can even request on his videos for him to do a realistic portrait of yourself - or, presumably, a delicious ode to your favorite snack. If he can get that shine onto a chocolate strawberry, just imagine what he could do to the beautiful sheen of a grilled cheese...
