I love the juxtaposition of these micro-moments captured in high mega-pixel party 'point and shoot' against the painstaking translation into analog art. My fancy is tickled even further by the medium; Bic ballpoint pen.

Spanish artist Juan Francisco Casas uses up to four 14p ballpoint pens (four?! no wonder I always lost them before they were empty...) to create his incredibly photorealistic drawings, measuring up to 10ft (3 meters) high.

Having spent thousands of hours myself surreptitiously scribbling my way (with a Bic ball point...) through my most excruciating classes, when I look at his work, I can almost smell that blue ink...

Rock on Juan, rock on.
