Awesome Ballpoint Pen Art By Jim Rugg
Comic book artist Jim Rugg (Street Angel, Afrodisiac) has an art show in Los Angeles on May 25 at iAm8Bit. What makes this showing special is that it features nothing but one-of-a-kind ballpoint drawings on spiral notebook paper. The show is called Notebook Nerd, which features pieces from Drive, Total Recall, Pulp Fiction, Bad Lieutenant, Friday the 13th, Sexy Beast and other pop culture pieces.
Check out a bunch of the art below. The Total Recall piece is NSFW:
Here’s the description;
The title is pretty self-explanatory, as “NOTEBOOK NERD” almost says it all. JIM RUGG, the Swiss Army Knife of artists (and longtime iam8bit collaborator), gives us an insane perspective inside his brainhole, exposing the terrors and delights that populate his thoughts every, single day. While his comics “Street Angel” and “Afrodisiac” have already been dubbed classics by the indie scene, Rugg’s art in this show is different. It’s truly an exercise in precision. His only tool: the mighty ballpoint pen; and his unlikely canvas – spiral-bound notebook paper.
