These amazing images are so much more than simple sketches. These Joao MT pen illustrations are are completely created with ordinary office pens.

This artist is definitely on the "ball-point." The entire series of inked images features crisp black lines and some splotches of bold color. Every single line is made from a black ballpoint pen, meaning mistakes are impossible to remove. It's hard to imagine how much time was poured into each piece; the penned patterns are pristine and dotted drawings are visually clear.
Joao MT focuses on a wide variety of subjects, but something he definitely shies away from is blandness. Every image features a figure or object that has surreal or unusual qualities.

The Joao MT pen illustrations are great images for those seeking surreal art.
