Stunning Photorealistic Ballpoint Pen Drawings

I’ve only now come across the work of Samuel Silva, who creates incredibly realistic paintings based of photographs. The Portugal-based attorney uses standard ballpoint pens for many of his drawings, sometimes working on a piece for over 45 hours.  The results are simply stunning, and to think that he describes his art ‘as a hobby’! 😉 Enjoy!
