  • i’m not sure how he is able to hold the pen that way!

  • Patrick

    this is really wonderful.

    pretty funny, i used to hold pencils the exact same way until i was around 16, then i forced myself to do it “right.” I still catch myself doing it from time to time. My handwriting is terrible possibly as a result.

  • I don’t think there’s a “right” way to hold your pen or pencil.

    What I want to know is how do you shade with a ballpoint pen like that?!?

  • ryan

    dude draws soo good almost looks similar to an old wood engraving

  • rosekat

    Ballpoint is remarkably versatile, depending on the stock and the surface you are working on!

  • mat

    I think it would have made more of an impact if he had chosen a regular Bic pen instead of a cool one like that. Where would you even get one of those? All the ones I find are sort of see-through and white.

  • amazing. this is amazing.

Sneak Peek of Timothy Saccenti and Sam Rolfes’ New Book

saccenti9

saccenti6
 

Visionary director and photographer Timothy Saccenti has a beautiful print project coming out! Made in collaboration with 3D illustrator Sam Rolfes and heavily inspired by model/actor Sui Nakashima (who Saccenti met on a project for Depeche Mode’s last album), SUI: A Journey in Self-Realization explores identity formation and transformation through a series of computer-generated manipulations.

The cinematic feel of the project is testament to Saccenti and Rolfes process, shooting thousands of frames in studio with Rolfes live scanning and manipulating on set/in real time. SUI consists of 35 unbound images that allow the reader to go through them in whatever way they choose. It also comes packaged in a reflective polychrome box encased in a vellum sheet, a deliberate decision on the part of CYMK Books to enhance the unique, material aspect of the project. Check out more images of SUI below!
