Illustrative Observations Of The Imagination With Just A Ballpoint Pen

1
“My name’s Marco. I’m originally from a small country town in regional Victoria, Australia. Drawing with a ballpoint has always been my favourite medium and long since I can remember that’s all I’ve really used. All these drawing have been illustrated freehand, without drafting in pencil. The idea of drawing without guides is liberating, allowing me transform any part of the drawing into anything I want. I’ve always had a love of drawing, particularly of things that swirl around my imagination. I find fun and engaging exercise to challenge your creativity. In this series of works I’ve been experimenting with machining the forms of organic figures by stripping them down of their natural figure and redesigning them through the combination of smaller mechanical parts. Thank you for looking.”

Artist Turns A Ford Falcon Into A Tank-Shaped Traveling Library

1

In celebration of world book day on 5th march, 7UP has teamed up with Buenos Aires-based artist Raul Lemesoff in the creation of ‘weapons of mass instruction’, a traveling library that tours Argentina in the shape of a tank. The ongoing project, which Lemesoff has built upon throughout the last few years, sees a 1979 Ford Falcon transform into a military-style vehicle, with a rotating upper chamber and pseudo-barrel. Although the tank may look militant, it has a very serious function of peace — Lemesoff tours through Argentina’s urban centers and rural communities, offering free books to anyone interested. Around 900 books fit on the car’s built-in shelves, with a varied collection of poetry, novels and biographies.

Portraits Of 11 Women Together With Their Stories

“I called this documentary project “11”, as the number of women I photographed all around Sicily, Italy. They come from all over the world and all of them left their homeland for the big deal. It took me more than 1 year to collect these stories, and all of them touched my heart. Women are brave, tenacious and passionate about whatever they decide to do!” – Luca Migliore.

Created by artist Agnė Kišonaitė, ‘Giant Lipstick’ is made of 5000+ used lipstick tubes, measuring a height of 2.5 meters with an overall weight of 200kg. Four tubes of rouge are sold every second in the world, and considering the amount of packaging left which cannot be recycled, so I wanted to create something which triggered our society to think more seriously about consumerism and the types of products they are purchasing, and bring attention towards the need to reduce waste.
