Juan Francisco Casas is an artist that creates life-like works of art by using just a blue Bic pen.
I've written about biro art before, but these sexy realistic drawings just blow everything else away. Some of his drawings have measured up to 10 feet high. That's a pretty tall woman!
Casas studied art at the University of Granada in Spain and later on worked there as a teacher. In 2004 he submitted one of his pieces to an art competition as sort of a joke but was surprised to learn that he won second place.
Casas based many of these drawings on photographs that were taken during a night out with friends. From the Daily Mail: Casas said: "I guess it started off as a joke, to try and make something so realistic that people would think is a photo. I also wanted to create it with something that everyone has - a Biro. I don't think it has ever been done before. For me it's not that different from painting. I was trying to show that it doesn't matter what material you use, it's what you do with it."
If these drawings were based on photographs from a night out, that must have
been a good party! I don't have any friends that would let me
photograph them like this. Come to think of it, I don't have any
friends at all. Maybe I should contact this artist and have him draw me
up a few friends I could bring with me to parties and baptisms.
So the next time you pick up that 10 pack of blue Bic pens, think of the possibilities! But please, don't do any naked self-portraits. No one wants to see that....
