Eric Thomas Bostrom’s illustrations are done almost completely with ballpoint pens. The melting portraits are created with col-erase light blue and red ball point pens to give texture to the curvy lines in his artwork.

The California artist adds gesso to create wild hues and at times Eric Thomas Bostrom will experiment with rubbing alcohol to bring out shades of purple. Bostrom has stated that sitting in front of blank sheet is all he needs to get his creative juices flowing. The results are fluid, surrealist images inspired by the artist's fascination with sex, biology and anatomy.
