Can you believe that this was drawn in ballpoint pen? If you think that’s impressive, look at some of these.
(You’ll have to scroll down to see, trust me it’s worth it)
I used to use a ballpoint all the time during high school, college and then boring work meetings. Ballpoint pens are easy access and cheaper than dirt. The good ones are the cheap ones and the best paper is doodle paper or any other porous paper like newsprint or bar napkins. There’s something very freeing about using cheap materials which can lead to new discoveries. It’s a no sweat way to draw. If it sucks throw it away and start over. No biggie.
Of course the artists featured on this site probably didn’t use a Bic and I’m pretty sure that ain’t doodle paper.
