Ballpoint Art
Complexity from Simplicity
_
Ballpoint pen is an ordinary, inexpensive yet practical art medium with infinite possibilities. Using a ballpoint pen, an artist can create a simple drawing with just a few strokes or a sophisticated drawing with strong lines, gradients, and contrast between light and shade. Ballpoint Art: Complexity from Simplicity spotlights 30 ballpoint pen artists with distinctive styles, each given a section of a short biography and a portrait, coupled with exclusive interviews with six established artists and starters. Flipping through the pages, readers will approach drawings, either in monochrome or colors, about a wide range of subject matters: nature, movies, music, vintage stuff, cyborg, people, etc. It is not just a “must-have” book for ballpoint artists, but a “should-have” book for those who like sketching and drawing with handy tools.
