Giant Octopus Drawn with Discarded Ballpoint Pens by Ray Cicin

Inspired in part by his graphic-designer friends deprecating comments about the lowly ballpoint pen, artist Ray Cicin took it upon himself to collect all their discarded pens and embarked on this illustration of a mammoth octopus. The piece is inspired by German naturalist Ernst Haeckel’s famous picture of squid and octopi and is part of Cicin’s continuing Deep Blue series.
