  • 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.
