Paul Kobringer Crafts Photorealistic Ballpoint Pen Portraits of Skate Icons

Visual artist and former marketing director of Transworld Skateboarding, Paul Kobriger, has launched original ballpoint pen portraits of six skate icons. Sized at 11 x 17 inches, the photorealistic works portray Lance Mountain, Mark Gonzales, Matt Hensley, Rodney Mullen, Tommy Guerrero, and Ray Barbee. Each piece also arrives in a bespoke handmade frame for an additional, negotiated cost.

“In light of my current situation—newly unemployed with 5 hungry mouths to feed—I’m offering for the first time to sell these original ballpoint pen drawings. They’re all 11×17 inches and each took around 150 hours to complete. 100% regular old Bic ballpoint pen,” said Kobriger to The Berrics.

Each artwork is priced generously at $35 USD a piece. Head over to Kobriger’s website to cop one now. Elsewhere in art, check out this week’s best art drops.
