Artist Spends Entire Year Drawing Giant Octopus Using Only Discarded Ballpoint Pens
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.
Proving that a good workman never blames his tools, Raymond took squid ink to a whole new level.
He used black, blue, and red ballpoint pens that his colleagues had thrown away.
And the result is nothing short of amazing.
He didn’t miss a single detail of the common octopus (or octopus vulgaris, trivia seekers).
Ta-da! The finished squid.
You can see Raymond’s other (smaller) illustrations completed with his new-found medium on Artsy.
