 These incredible images are created using a Bic Biro.
Amazing,,, I know! You can also find a collection of awesome paintings on his site too.
Its unbelievable to see drawings so amazing using a medium so simple and often taken for granted 
(I loose more Biro's than I actually use).
I read in one of the press write ups on his page that his drawings often take over a month to complete, and are based on private party snaps and I think a few of the images would make you question exactly what kind of private parties the artist has been hosting? 

The artist behind these works is Juan Francisco Casas Ruiz
and here is a bit of his Biography from his website;
(You should take a look on his site and see the extensive list of awards, and exhibitions and stuff this guy has had. Pretty incredible!,,,,,,,don't forget to look at his paintings too)

'Juan Francisco Casas Ruiz was born in La Carolina, Jaén, 21 September 1976. He got a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 1999 and a Master in Fine Arts in 2003 from the University of Granada. During his studies he was first in his class and won the National Award for Master Thesis of the Ministry of Education and Science for the best graduate qualifications in Spain, an award which was presented by Culture Minister, Pilar del Castillo.

In 2000, he received the scholarship of Teacher Education and Research. From that year until 2004 he completed his PhD at the University of Granada while also teaching drawing and printmaking in their Department of Drawing.
