A Gargantuan Octopus Rendered with Discarded Ballpoint Pens by Ray Cicin

Octo-1

Inspired in part by his graphic-designer friends disparaging comments about the lowly ballpoint pen, artist Ray Cicin took it upon himself to collect all their discarded pens and embarked on this drawing of a mammoth octopus. The piece is inspired by German naturalist Ernst Haeckel’s famous illustration of squid and octopi, and is part of Cicin’s ongoing Deep Blue series. You can follow more of his work on Instagram.

Hi Miguel,

That Octopus is amazing. Some people sure do have wonderful talent. Guess we all do, some of us haven't found ours yet.

Yes Myrna, he certainly is endowed with a superlative artistic ability and besides, he seems to have found a most rewarding streak in that octopus and similar themes for his works. A great combination for success in these difficult times for any artist, but well deserved in his case.

Here is another of his works - he painted it on an notebook! (click to enlarge)
