Holographic Ballpoint Pen Drawings

Improvisational high-precision holographic ballpoint pen drawings using a desk lamp and a magnifying glass… and a pair of white gloves!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

One way to render the holographic effect on a computer screen is to take several pictures of the same drawing with different lighting and making a slideshow with them. There are numerous slideshows of my creations on this website. Just click on the pictures or entries on the menu down below or use the search function at the top of the page if you know even part of the name of the work.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of
    content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text
    for only having 1 or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  4. Whats pauls email-I had some questions?

Introduction :

Most of these drawings were made using ballpoint pens on paper. Most of these drawings have a "holographic" effect when you move them, yourself or the light source around.

You can enjoy this optical illusion thanks to the slideshows that I have included for some of the drawings.

Music and Improvisation

To illustrate my passion for music, I have also included just one composition of mine for soprano voice and piano four-hands, based on a poem I wrote called "The Mourning of Lives" (see under "Technique and Composition").

The Furoshiki Project : NEW FACES Furoshiki Classy Blue

We have been developing new motifs for making Japanese wrapping textiles called furoshikis. A furoshiki is a square piece of cloth, usually made of chirimen silk or cotton. Furoshikis come in different standard sizes, but we chose 75cm x 75cm.

The NEW FACES motif, consisting of organically shaped squares, has been adapted to the Japanese furoshiki. What you are seeing here are the first of a series of original furoshiki designs made with the unique ballpoint pen design technique featured on this website.

New furoshiki prototypes will be exhibited soon in Brussels.
