Masterful Ballpoint Pen Drawings by Samuel Silva (VianaArts)

When you see the image above, you might think, "Man, that's a beautiful photo." Unfortunately, you would be dead wrong. Fortunately, you would be right in thinking it is beautiful. It is a beautiful drawing. That's right, I said drawing.

Samuel Silva (VianaArts on Deviant Art) is the mastermind behind this, and a few other incredible drawings made entirely out of ballpoint pens. Another amazing fact: Silva is a lawyer by day and artist by hobby. He started drawing, sculpting and painting at 2 years old and has only recently tried to master the ballpoint pen. I think he's succeeded.

Here's an insightful FAQ from his "Redhead Girl" drawing:

Q:How many colors do you have and what pens are these?
A: I have 8 colored Bic ballpoint pens, for this I used 6 of them plus black. They are just common everyday ballpoint pens.

Q: Where do you get them? I have never seen them.
A: Staples, Ebay, Amazon, and pretty much any good office supply store, just because you haven't noticed them before doesn't mean they don't exist.

Q: Do you use any other medium mixed with the ballpoint pens?<
A: No, I just use ballpoint pens for these drawings. Everything is 100% ballpoint pen.

Q: How do you mix the colors? How do you blend them?
A: I don't mix them nor blend them. Ballpoint pen ink dries instantly and can not be erased. I just cross hatch the different colors in layers to create the illusion of blending and the illusion of colors I don't actually have.

Q: Are you a professional Artist? 
A: No, I'm just a lawyer, art is just a hobby for me, although it takes from 5 to 50 hours to finish each drawing. I started drawing when I was 2.

Nerds 30 Rock Portraits by Andrew Salomone

I am loving these 30 Rock portraits by Andrew Salomone. They feature characters Liz Lemon (Tina Fey) and Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin), and the best part is, they are made of Nerds! I am absolutely certain that Liz would appreciate this fine tribute. If you haven't watched the show before, I highly suggest it.

Heat Sensitive Paint Ideas by Shi Yuan

Heat Sensitive Paint Ideas by Shi Yuan

These are some pretty impressive uses for heat sensitive paint used by Shi Yuan. The poster above reacts when you touch it. The wallpaper reacts to a rise in temperature, and the calendar fades away during the day. It's a wonder why people aren't currently marketing these kinds of things to every day users.

Elegance. Desire. Dance. Hyperrealistic Paintings by Rob Hefferan

Wow! That is the one word that comes to mind when I look at Rob Hefferan's hyperrealistic paintings. The amount of details he pours into each painting is astounding. He truly knows how to bring out beauty in women in his paintings. Incredibly, this is only a small sampling of his work. I highly recommend checking out more on his website. In the mean time, enjoy my favorites below!

Mountain Collage Art by Liesl Pfeffer

Summer Fjord

Liesl Pfeffer is a photo-media artist from Melbourne Australia. She has some very cool patchwork photo collages. I love the sharp deliberate use of straight edges used to represent the mountains and also the use of cut out photos of the sky and grass to help create the collages. You can find her on Blogger, Flickr, Twitter and Tumblr.

Striking Illustrations by Gabriel Moreno

Gabriel Moreno is a gifted illustrator, engraver and painter based out of Madrid. His illustrations consist of a collage of elements and make excellent use of very defined lines which he uses to create depth, shading and shadows. The splash of water colors helps to bring an added touch of life to his drawings.
