These drawings by artist Il Lee remind me of foggy Bay Area mornings, much like the one we’re having today. Unbelievably, each one of these drawings was made with just a ball point pen! In reality it’s probably more like 50 ball point pens—my hands are aching just thinking about it. What makes these pieces even more incredible is their size; as you can see in the last image below, some of these drawings measure over 30″ x 40″
