Ballpoint pen drawings
Here are some drawings that I did recently on a bus ride to work. I cursed the fact that I had forgotten my usual tools of trade (Faber-Castell Artist pens), and had to use a ballpoint pen that I found in my backpack. It felt weird to draw with a ballpoint pen; I don't think that I've really used one to draw with since high school! While some find these cheap pens unforgiving in the permeability of their lines, I actually found it kind of fun to be able to draw wispy lines of different shades. Those artists markers that I usually use lay out a deep, dark line that is quite unalterable.
