Octopus loves unite. Artist Ray Cicin drops an impressively detail portrait of an octopus using ballpoint pens.
Cicin’s friends had some not-so-nice remarks about ballpoint pens and their use in artwork. This inspired the artist to collect all of the discarded pens that he had lying around. Upon collection, Cicin began to draw a massive portrait of an octopus. The piece is based on German naturalist Ernst Haeckel’s famous illustration of squid and octopi, and is a part of Cicin’s ongoing series called, “Deep Blue”.
