Vermeer’s “The Girl With a Pearl Earring”

gwpe-small
In 2010 I collaborated with BIC to recreate this Vermeer painting in ballpoint pen (which they manufacture). The video of it went viral with over 720,000 hits which you can view on YouTube here.
There was a lot of press coverage over the drawing at the time.
London’s Metro paper, Telegraph online, Express online, Sun online. Also mentioned on Radio 1, and then a televised feature on ITV London Tonight. In 2010 I was the only artist working in ballpoint pen this way in the UK. More common now however.
