Artist Spends Entire Year Drawing Giant Octopus Using Only Discarded Ballpoint Pens

1

When designer friends questioned the usefulness of ballpoint pens, artist Raymond Cicin took it as a challenge. He spent a year drawing this enormous, amazingly detailed octopus.

2

Proving that a good workman never blames his tools, Raymond took squid ink to a whole new level.

3

He used black, blue, and red ballpoint pens that his colleagues had thrown away.

4

And the result is nothing short of amazing.

5

He didn’t miss a single detail of the common octopus (or octopus vulgaris, trivia seekers).

Ta-da! The finished squid.
