style=”text-align: justify;”>Ballpoint pens don’t create artwork – till you make them do it. Artist Raymond Cicin even used them to attract a powerful octopus! The artist was impressed by designer mates complaining that ballpoint pens simply weren’t good for artwork. Cicin collected their discarded pens and got down to create an enormous blue tribute to ballpoints.
