The Awe Of Ballpoint

Enam Bosokah

So, as previously mentioned I now have gotten into sketching with a ballpoint pen, which was the missing piece for me in actually enjoying sketching. Since then I’ve done some internet exploring and have come across some amazing artwork created with just a ballpoint pen. Now I’m not going to jump off of doing pointillism art and start working with just a ballpoint, that’s not going to happen. But I’m completely awe struck with what some artists can do with just a simple  pen that you can pick up in the stationary aisle at any store. 

Here are two amazing artists, Enam Bosokah and Mostafa Desha, who have created some awe inspiring, photorealistic drawings in ballpoint. (I could only find an online profile for Bosokah.)

  1. These are stunning, and so amazing that they’ve been done with ballpoint pen (obviously their pens don’t clog and go gunky like mine do!) I prefer the second artist’s work, and he has a Youtube channel which is interesting (or would be if I didn’t get headaches from speeded up visuals!) Maybe you can find out more about him via his channel?

    1. Bic Crystal don’t seem to clog up. That’s what I’ve been using for my sketching. I’ll definitely look up Desha on YouTube. Thanks for the tidbit. 😊
