Ballpoint Pen Drawings by Samuel Silva

It’s hard to believe that the images below are photorealistic drawings that were made with ballpoint pens…and by a lawyer! Portuguese lawyer Samuel Silva who graduated in 2007 describes his art as a hobby, but the results are everything but amateurish. “It takes me forever to do my works. The only thing that makes me keep going is my love for what I do and the ambition to go further and further”. For instance, the red-headed girl portrait took him about 30 hours to finish, while others require up to 45 hours. Incredible. Enjoy!
