Madrid-based French artist Anthony Caseiro knows how to handle a pen -- a blue Bic pen, to be exact. His etchings border on photo-realistic, considering the artist limits himself to only one color. Anthony Caseiro's mastery of the ballpoint pen is glaringly apparent in his most recent series 'Blue Bic Pen on Paper.'

Most drawings focus on portraits. Anthony Caseiro is featured in a few of these, demonstrating the artist's talent for figurative drawing. He extends this talent to a well-known pop culture icon, Walter from 'The Big Lebowski' and the depiction is uncanny.

Anthony Caseiro also manages to convey an expressive energy in each of the pieces. He evokes a sense of movement that is no doubt a difficult task within the bounds of a stationary art form.
