ON THE BALL

Posted on January 23, 2012

Prepare to be amazed, these stunning pieces of art were created with a ball point pen! Yes, you read it right, that was with a ball point pen. Created by Brooklyn-based artist Shane McAdams who draws his inspiration from the abstract-looking Southwest desert he grew up in, they resemble land formations and other natural phenomenon he loved as a child. Apart from thier perfect spring colours, our favourite thing about his work is that they need to be taken to the tanning salon before they're finished. It's the UV light that creates the beautifully a delicate, yet bold colours. We don't know about you but we're inspired to start wearing our trusty black staples with bright bursts of spring-like color.
