I'm just a self taught patient hobbyist person.

I've always been interested in drawing, sculpting and painting since I was 2 years old.

I started drawing and developing my own style of ballpoint pen drawing back when I was in school, in simple classroom sketches in the back of my exercise books. I never imagined there were so many brilliantly masterful ballpoint artists out there.

Ballpoint pen is not my only medium, it's just the one I'm currently trying to master. At this point in my life I'm fairly proficient with chalk, pencil, color pencil, pastels, oils and acrylics. Maybe one day I'll create an account just to share those.

I'm just glad to be here, I want to learn a lot, see a lot, and enjoy to its fullest what other fellow artists have to share.

It takes me forever to do my works. The only thing that makes me keep going is my love for what I do and the ambition to go further and further.

Ballpoint pens are as underestimated as they are a powerful medium.
A ballpoint pen is just another art tool. A tool is only as powerful as the Artist who uses it.

It's not about what you use, it's about how you use it.

You're so talented, keep up you're amazing work!

((Always work on your art. You're amazing, and I wouldn't want someone like you, to waste it. C: Not saying that you would, but I see a lot of good artists waste their talents. And I don't want to see that happen to you. ;)))

You're officially my favourite artist. I've been looking for the source of your Redhead Girl drawing for ages and it never traced back to you. I'm currently very happy. xD

I thought I could be proud of my works with black ballpoint pen because I tried to make a study without a pencil lineart. After seeing this I feel like a child Nuu You are an incredible artist! I just have to see the group you founded!
