Hakuchi by Shohei

I came across the following drawing online a long time ago. However, I had soon forgotten the name of the artist and had no luck finding it online.

By chance, I came across his work again and was able to trace it back to his website. http://www.hakuchi.jp/ I’m not sure if Hakuchi is his trade name or not but it translates to “idiot”. His real name is Shohei and all of his artwork is done with ball-point pens. I like the mix of violence, manga, and Neo-Tokyo themes his drawings. I think it’s impressive that he can obtain the entire greyscale spectrum with just a black ball-point pen.

This particular drawing looks so photorealistic, making it that much more impressive.

More of his work can be found at his website.
