Silva's work is wonderful. I have his gallery bookmarked at home in fact. It just does not get any better.

Incredible!!! One pic took him 30 hours, wow! It is hard to believe this kind of work can be done with pens.
It reminds me of the artist Paul Lung, who takes weeks to finish one drawing. Man these guys must be zen masters to sit for so long, focusing on a small space and making tiny lines.

I'm just glad to be here, I want to learn a lot, see a lot, and enjoy to its fullest what other fellow artists have to share.

Portuguese Lawyer and part-time artist Samuel Silva can dedicate up to 60hrs creating one of his visual masterpieces, all done with standard Bic ballpoint pens.
Other, less impressed people just call it COPYING.
He gets a PHOTOGRAPH somebody else has taken, and makes a COPY of it.
The Jaguar, for example. The original photo can be found here at this site.
