Chadwick Boseman as "T'Challa."...Comic Book

Ballpoint pen artwork may seem to be showing an upstream in visibility these days, nevertheless, its origins can be traced back to the 1950s when artists Andy Warhol and Alberto Giacometti both used it as a medium to produce their artwork. 

The low-cost and easy accessibility of pens makes it all the easier to produce an attractive piece of art. Krystle Hickman’s rendition of Black Panther’s T’Challa is stunning.

Krystle Hickman is a Los Angeles based ballpoint artist hailing from Omaha, Nebraska.  Boldly following her dreams, she quit her office job for a chance to pursue her passion for drawing.

Hickman specializes in hyper-realistic work, video, Photoshop and website content.  Her masterpieces have been commissioned by figures in the movie and music industries and political figures. She has worked for MTV, Kevin Hart and The Jacksons.

Hickman is also the creator of BeeSip – a charitable business that raises proceeds to educate the public about honey bees and honey bee conservation.

She also produces art pieces with sugar on canvas and blackboard.

Very impressive.
