Stunning Photorealistic Ballpoint Pen Art By Samuel Silva

Would you believe that all of these drawings were done with ballpoint pens? I couldn’t believe it when I saw them for the first time. Art like this has to take a lot of time and attention to detail. Samuel Silva only uses 8 different colored ballpoint pens to creative these incredible drawings or ballpoint pen art. How he can make them look so realistic with just 8 colors is a mystery to me. This guy has been drawing and developing his skills since he was two.
Samuel’s profession is as an attorney and says art is just his hobby. Does he know how much money he could make off of his hobby? Do you know how cool that would be to have a talent and something you love to do that earns you money? He’s definitely a lucky guy.
Take a look at his amazing ballpoint pen art drawings and let us know what you think in the comments section.
