Oscar Ukonu Makes Amazing Art Illustrations with Only a Ball Pen

Oscar is a Nigerian self-taught artist.

Whats different about him is the  tool he uses- and the amazingly detailed portraits he creates.

He calls himself a “ball pen artist”. Rightly so, all he uses is his ball pen and white embossed paper.

He first uses pencils to sketch out the outlines, then shades with a pen.

His art doesn’t come easy though.According to him it takes an average of 100 hours to finish a work. He actually spent a total of 120 hours sketching this work  of Morgan Freeman

Its not surprising, he uses  very light cross-hatches that are tiny and close to each other.
