I love working with ballpoint pens and I draw anything that comes to mind. My artwork is called “the swellhead,” and it means a conceited person. When I started drawing this, I have no plan to make it exactly what it looks like right now, and my only goal is to just have fun. As I work with this, I added some things which I think would make it more interesting such as the large cylinder-shaped organ that is connected to the brain— sucking the life of the creatures surrounding the dude with the big brain. Since it looks like something out of this world, I added some alien hieroglyphs on the background. It was a very fun process, but it was also very hard because I’m trying to find a time when I could I work with this and finish it.
