Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) - Drawings made with soft pastels that look as though they were photographs line the set of the hit Netflix series 'House of Cards. '

The artist behind the amazing pieces is Brooklyn resident Zaria Forman.

"A friend of a friend who is graphic designer on the show loved it (my work) and really wanted to put it on," said Forman.

Using only her fingers and hands, Forman smudges the soft pastels into in her canvas.

Among her most popular pieces is a series about climate change. Forman visited the Maldives which is vulnerable to rising sea levels. She recreated the choppy seas and landscapes to draw attention to the island.

    Long Island native Madison Beer seems to be walking the same path to super-stardom as her mentor - and the person who discovered her- Justin Bieber. The pop star was on YouTube one day and found a video of Beer singing 'At Last' by Etta James. "I posted a YouTube video when I was 12 about to turn 13 and then Scooter and Justin had gotten in contact with my mom. She was like you're Justin  Bieber, right, right," said Beer about the moment that changed her life.

    At least a dozen scathing reviews were printed about Robert F. Kennedy Jr.'s new book on a preservative used in vaccines before it was released. It's not fair, says Kennedy Jr., and he explained why during Good Day New York. "They attacked me for what they believed was going to be in the book which was a discussion about autism and that is not in the book," said Kennedy Jr.
