    Great art Jrr

    You're doing some great drawings from life with a ballpoint pen Jrr. Please review our site with a MSN browser for the very best results. The Netscape browser really displays our sites poorly and distorts everything.

    I'm located at ballpointpenart@hotmail.com if you would like to communicate Jrr. My group design is plain, easy and simple. The content counts as well as the art history we produce. Do you have a site Jrr? There are three different sites or groups linked together and make up 1 1/4 million bites of information and over 700 drawings. There are also 14 different ballpoint pen artists posted.

    You will see yellow, gold and brown ballpoint pen inks among other colors on our sites. I love colored ballpoint pens and the half tones they produce. Jerry

    Interesting...I haven't done any finished pieces with ballpoint pen. I've used them for quick life drawings though.

    Lightbulb BallPoint Pen lines

    BallPoint Pen lines

    1. tips: strongest pen tips in history: largest ink reserve of any pen system

    a. extra-fine: I have some drawings completed with the extra-fine tip that went out of production in 1981-82 and came in black or blue. The extra-fine ballpoint pen tip is the sharpest camera ready line in art history.

    b. fine: Today, a ballpoint pen's fine tip size produces the sharpest camera ready line in our art world.

    c. regular: The regular tip is also called a medium. This tip can produce a half tone plus a solid long flowing line. The line can be dark, long flowing and produce a reflection if really piled on. The medium is good for making dark areas and will certainly saturate a paper with ink.

    d. bold: The bold ballpoint pen tip is another history making tip. The bold ballpoint pen tip and ink supply produces a full tone long flowing line as never before. Needless to say its the best ballpoint tip for coloring in dark areas. It also delivers more ink than any other tips therefore the refection is greater.

    2. half tone lines: The ballpoint pen is the only pen system in history capable of producing a half tone line with a full tone ink. Lifting up on a pen produces a half tone and pushing down or adding pressure makes a full tone. The half tone almost never reflects or shines as thinker ink does. A half tone line is great for starting a drawing, shaping, forming or polishing up a drawing like now others! The ballpoint pens half tones are the subtlest in drawing or art history.

    a. extra-fine, fine: These two tip sizes are the best for polishing a drawing or doing other sensitive areas.

    3. bold lines: A ballpoint pen has a tremendous ink supply plus a remarkable long flowing line. A ballpoint produces the quickest long flowing line in art history. That quick or bold long flowing line certainly is best for capturing nature or motion in life. Its much easier for me to draw people or nature in motion with a fast moving tool or instrument.

    Doing outdoor drawings or impressionism this instrument works perfect. A bold long flowing line produces life, a refreshing or colorful drawing and some very special other mediums just can’t do. Many artists on the Internet draw from a photo. Sharp or slow moving lines make up those works and certainly don’t deliver what a dark bold line does.

    a. bold, regular: The bold and regular (medium) tips are best for doing full tone lines. A bold or regular tip can produce a half tone line yet thinner points work better. These two tips deliver the most ink therefore works best with darkening or filling in areas. They make the best blacks or dark colors than all other pens.

    A bold tip delivers a colored full tone line or flow no others pen systems can produce. That wonderful bold flowing line is a historical event. Its a flow never seen before in pen’s four thousand plus years of history. A ballpoint pen sells by the billion because of that nice flowing line.

    4. black & white: The ballpoint pen first arrived in black. Blue was the second ink then I think red came along. Black and blue were for writing and red for accounting. I used pencils for five years before a ballpoint. I learned what black and white was all about plus how to draw with a pencil. I however went to a ballpoint pen ink for quicker, cleaner and darker lines. A stacked black ink will shine and most likely out last all colored inks.

    5. multi-colored: The ballpoint pen delivers a full or half tone colored line without changing pens or inks. I can stack colors to produce the richest pen & ink drawings in history. A ballpoint puts a darker, richer or more vibrant color on a page than all other pen systems. My luscious colors far exceed a tech or dip pen ink or drawings. Those wonderful colors bring a new life to the pen & ink art movement. They also speck well of the ballpoint pen art movements!

    6. mono: (one color) A mono colored ballpoint pen drawing is one color. I did more red drawings than any other ink color. I really loved doing gold ink drawings. Blue and green are two more mono colors used in the past. I need to do a mono colored drawing with each color I have. We’re recording ballpoint pen art history and every new area we can represent will build our art movements historical base.

    7. blotches: Most ballpoint pens produce small blotches of ink on the top a pen’s tip when drawing quickly. Fast action with a bold tip will produce that ink build up quickest. When I work quickly or outside blotches simply add color, character and style to my drawings. Pilling on lines and color is the name of that game. Boldness and color is the more important with or without any blotches than details or refinements.

    8. reflection: Oil base inks simply produce a reflection, shine, sheen or burn out spot on negatives. Remember oil paintings are the king of mediums and shine like an oil painting. Some ballpoint pen inks dry flat while others shine. This might show up when scanning or using a flash camera. Your light source will determine if there is a going to be a shine.

    If the ink reflects a scanner light or flash bulb its call a burn out. Other mediums can warp a paper or reflect a flash bulb or light. Each medium has its advantages or place in history as does the ballpoint.

    9. by products: When a drawing is completed prints, books, limited editions, posters, post cards or other items can be produced from such a work. The incomes of each by product is your royalties and that helps increase your originals prices.

    This should pretty well explain such matters.

    Thank You,

    Jerry Stith

    Ballpoint Pen Art Movement

    http://jerrystith.multiply.com/

    BallPoint Pen and Ink Art Movement (Biro)
    Hello Ladies and Gentlemen, my name is Jerry Stith and I’m a ballpoint pen artist for the past forty-one years. In the year 2000 I established an American folk art program called Ball Point Pen Art, Ballpoint Pen Art or Ballpointpenart. I did that by purchasing the domain names ballpointpenart.net, .com, org, and us. I actually invented the topic ballpoint pen art as a domain name plus started publishing sites, video’s, slide shows, message board post among other activities.

    The inventor of the ballpoint pen was Mr. John J. Load a citizen of the United States, residing at Weymonth, in the county of Norfolk and Common Wealth of Massachusetts, patented the first ballpoint pen. The first patent on a ballpoint pen was issued on 30 October, 1888, to John J Loud, registration No. 392,046.

    The pen had a rotating small steel ball bearing. As with modern ballpoint pens, the ball was held in place by a socket. It was fitted with a means for supplying heavy, sticky ink to the ball. The pen proved to be too coarse for letter writing, but it could be used to mark rough surfaces, especially leather.However, the patent was commercially unexploited and another ballpoint pen device was patented by Van Vechten Riesburg in 1916. The patent lapsed without improvement renewal.

    Commercial models appeared in 1895, but the first satisfactory model of a ballpoint pen was designed by two Hungarian brothers living in Argentina: Lazlo, a journalist, and George Biro, a chemist. Lazlo noticed that the type of ink used in newspaper printing dried quickly, leaving the paper dry and smudge-free. He decided to create a pen using quick-drying ink instead of India ink. The thicker ink, though, would not flow from an ordinary pen nib and Biro had to devise a new type of point. Lazlo put a tiny metal ball bearing in the tip of a pen, the success of the ballpoint pen is due to the accuracy in which the ball is ground.

    A ballpoint pen can produce three unique lines that no other pen system in history have ever done. A long flowing line, dark rich colors and the subtlest camera ready art line in history. Introducing those qualities, artists and their ballpoint pen ink drawings to the world is what my American folk art program has done before one billion others worldwide. Today, I have 5,700 drawings, 153 video's completed by 800 ballpoint pen artists archived, documented, recorded and published and that is “News Worthy” or “Art History in the makings”!

    The Bic Pen Company indicated that they along sold over one hundred billion ballpoint pens several years ago publicly. That makes me wonder how many ballpoint companies there are worldwide producing similar pens? It seems to me that a ballpoint pen is the greatest writing, drawing or carbon copy instrument in history. That indicates our Point Pen Art is the largest undeveloped art movement in history!

    Billions of people throughout history have used a ballpoint pen yet none of their artworks are showing up in our worldwide galleries, museums, public buildings, publications or media. That Is why I Am publishing thousands of ballpoint pen drawings, illustrations, sketches, doodles, inklings, pictures or video’s by 800 International artists. Needless to say, I Am the greatest ballpoint pen publisher on the WWW or in history and I say, Let the Inks Flow plus Keep on Creating.

    Ballpoint Pen virtues!
    *Four thousand year pen and ink history
    *Most sold art instrument in history
    *Largest undeveloped art movement in history
    *Longest flowing pen lines in history
    *Brightest colored pen inks in history

    *Only oil based pen ink in history
    *Strongest pen tips in history
    *Best carbon copy producer in history

    BallPoint Pen Virtues

    BallPoint Pen virtues!

    1. Four thousand years of pen and ink history: (A quill feather was cut and prepared to be used as a dipping pen that dominated the market place for one thousand years. Metal tips or nibs became into use thereafter for recording, writing and artworks. Most other art mediums didn’t exit, so comparing pen and ink to them is rather absurd because society was completely run with our medium) Pens have elevated every society throughout history for the past four or five thousand years like no medium and that indicates other art medium are lesser effective or inferior. Pen and Ink therefore has countless billions of supporters.

    2. Most sold art instrument in history: How many people have exited over the past four thousand plus years is an interesting question just like how many pens or ballpoints have be used by those individuals during those times. Pen and Ink has a tremendous past as does the Biro or ballpoint pen. A ballpoint is being used via illustrations, animation, cartoons, lettering, as a mixed media, commercially, industrially, as a fashion tool and throughout the graphic or fine art communities.

    3. Largest undeveloped art movement in history: A ballpoint pen became commercialized or first manufactured worldwide in 1938 in Argentina through the efforts of the Biro brothers. The Biro’s failed to get production rights with the United States so shortly after that date pen companies within this country retooled and produced their own models or designs. The Bic Pen Company has already sold over one hundred billion ballpoint pens and that’s only one manufactory in the world. How many of those ballpoint pens get used for doodling, sketching, drawings, inklings or illustrations? Interrogating those artworks into our art community’s infrastructure will provide hope, prosperity, gains, sales and recognition. Our art community is of the people, for the people and by the people!

    4. Longest flowing pen lines in history: In the art world spontaneity is considered very important particularly if the artist is working outdoors because things are moving unlike working from photographs which is like imitating a camera. Doodles, sketches and today’s inklings are most often based on quick long flowing full tone lines used to capture action, a mood, expression or moving motion. The lines always remain the same, never thicken or dull plus keep on going throughout your creative adventure. I have more than three and a half thousand sketches from the good old days published on the Web for the beginners, youth or children of the world. They represent a level countless millions of people interested in exploring the art world can relate to!

    5. Brightest colored pen inks in history: Pen and Ink has been around for about four or five thousand years or longer than almost all other media or medium. The earlier inks came mostly in black or shades of brown. India ink was about the best because it was really black plus archival therefore most excellent as a writing, recording or artistic medium. India inks are however water based which seems to work well with black yet not colors. Blacks have a different make up or properties than do colors. That means colored inks are weak, almost transparent or not comparable to other art mediums.

    Ballpoint pen inks are oil based, much thicker, radiant, brighter or beautiful in compare. Now pretty, beautiful or brilliant artworks can be produced via pen and ink as never before. That’s New Worthy or a vast improvement within that art movement plus an attraction to millions from around the world. I’m not seeing any colored ballpoint pen drawings surfacing out of Great Britain or some other countries. I’m seeing colors coming out of China, New Zealand, Spain, France, Canada, India and some other nations throughout the world and that’s spectacular or a vast improvement.

    6. Subtlest camera-ready half tone lines in history: Camera-ready means, ready for market or to go not first in a series of events multiple processes. In 1980-82 Parker Pens produced an extra (ultra) fine ballpoint pen tip that arrived in black or blue oil based inks. The cartridges are wide so massive lines or art works could be completed with each unit. The extra-fine tips were remarkable thin or much like drawing with a nail. Those tips got removed from the market place or selves because of limited sales.

    The extra-fine or fine ballpoint pen tips produce an amazing thin line and that’s extremely important within the graphic art community. Eloquence, sophistication, perfection or exquisite line work describes graphic art works using very detailed lines therefore such words are appropriate for our ballpoint pen drawings. Why! A ballpoint pen can produce a half tone line that is subtler than all other graphic or fine art medium so such descriptions do apply. A new detailed or thin line elevates the sensitivity level of mankind and that’s a extraordinary statement to say the least.

    7. Only oil based pen ink in history: Oil based inks can produce a half tone lines from a full tone ink supply, carry more pigments used in making brighter colors plus enables better storage. Some ballpoint pen’s have an ink reserve that can produce a line three quarters of a mile long! That indicates lots of fun, freedom or creative expressions to me, my friends.

    8. Strongest pen tips in history: A strong ballpoint pen tip enables it to produce an outstanding carbon copy, stops breakage, lets it work on many rough surfaces, work upside down, underwater and in deep space. Sometimes it even works as a prying, scraping or digging device.

    9. Best carbon copy producer in history: A ballpoint pen revolutionized record keeping, government, business because of the ability to make an excellent carbon copy!

    10. Most reliable pen in history: A ballpoint pen is portable, study, reliable, effective therefore extremely popular or the greatest writing and drawing instrument in history and is being used to run society.

    Founder Jerry Stith: American Folk Art Program

    Founder Jerry Stith: American Folk Art Program (Mar 24, '09 12:47 PM)

    This is Jerry Stith the founder of an American folk art program titled Ball Point Pen Art. I started drawing with a ballpoint pen in 1968 and publishing on the WWW in the year 2000. Introducing what a ballpoint pen’s multi-colored oil based ISO inks can do is what my program is all about. The inventor of the ballpoint pen was Mr. John J. Load a citizen of the United States, residing at Weymonth, in the county of Norfolk and Common Wealth of Massachusetts, patented the first ballpoint pen. The first patent on a ballpoint pen was issued on 30 October, 1888, to John J Loud, registration No. 392,046.

    I started doing art around fifty-five years ago my friends. Crayons, paint by numbers set, pencils, colored pencils and ballpoint pens introduced me into the art world of fun. Tempera paints, water colors, construction paper, glue, colored chalk, felt tip markers and charcoal elevated me to the next round of achievements. Clay, wood, metal wire, paper Mache, pastels, oil pastels, conte’, graphite, acrylics, pen and ink, copper enameling, metal sculpture, lighting, murals, pressed leaves, photograph, silk screening, enamel cuttings, leather, commercial layouts, lettering, digital, animation, design and producing video all added more feathers to my hat.

    I was in Ohio. My dad served in the Air Force for over thirty years, went to three wars and last worked on the Inspector General's team via their Logistic Air Command. My loving mother raised five boys, was a born again Christian plus got me interested in art as a youth therefore she's truly loved. I have four brothers and one of those is my twin. Both sides of my family lived in Cincinnati for several generations so everyone was pretty well familiar with the area. My dad went to school at the University of Cincinnati and majored in business. He went from there into the military as an officer.

    That meant we traveled much, experienced many different schools, bases, towns or cities plus vast amounts of people along that long hard road of life. I learned what life was as a military brat or new guy on the block many times to say the least. I’ve moved around fifty times throughout my life which means experience was traded in for roots! That indicates meeting people with roots is in order which is where my wife and family becomes important. Needless to say, my church or God’s family come to mind as well, amen. I'm amazed at how many people dislike our military and or families. We gave up everything to protect American's freedom yet many treated us harshly when moving into their communities.

    New York City, Boston, Cambridge, San Francisco, Los Angles, Las Vegas, Spokane, Sacramento, Boise, San Diego, Topeka, Wichita, Austin, Columbus, Dayton, Santa Cruz, Santa Rosa, Eureka, Cave Junction, Arcata, San Rafael, Tuscan and Juneau are some of the places I’ve lived in along the way. I also enjoyed visiting Honolulu, Paris and parts of Canada throughout my travels as well. Each and everyone of those places had galleries, museums, public art works plus many stores displaying local art that influenced my personal development. Please remember that each and everyone of those places have their own perspectives, media, personalities and style which influence the art.

    I’m by trade a portrait artist yet do animation, commercial formats, video, digital imagery, illustration, cartoon/comic, design/Interactive, still lifes, landscapes, animals, birds, buildings, web development and some writing. It really helps if you know many different realms of the art world if pleasing the public or enjoying life is important. I love working outdoors or from life because its easier on my eyes, attracts many people plus provides a feeling for nature!

    This is my tenth year on the World Wide Web as a publisher and artists. I had the largest Pen and Ink and Ball Point Pen Art sites on the Web for the past nine years as of March 2009. This year is my tenth year as a publisher and my fifty-fifth as an artist. I’m currently publishing over 2,400 ballpoint pens drawings by 155 artists at my new Multiply site. Prior that I published four Ball Point Pen Art sites with the Microsoft Network which shut down this month or March my friends.

    When I first came to the WWW there were two artists displaying some ballpoint pen drawings, no Pen and Ink or Ball Point Pen Art networks. I therefore established the domain names ballpointpenart.us, net., org and com domain names. After that I spent around ten thousand hour developing or publishing 45 ballpoint pen artists, stats, pen information, colored ink/ ISO-DIN list and much more to inform the world of what a ballpoint pen can do as an art instrument, medium or movement.

    During those nine years I was the most published Ball Point Pen Art site and or forum via the WWW or in history. Documenting, recording, archiving or publishing what a ballpoint pen could do as a Pen and Ink medium was my desire because that's my part in producing history which is really great as an artist.

    In 1968 I started using quill and Speedo dip pens for lettering and artworks. Mixing pen and ink with water colors worked real fine for me because of the colors. I loved the boldness of an ink. It taught me disciple, to be alert plus lets me appreciate a steady hand. Ink shows no mercy if you have a shaky hand, flinch or make a mistake my friends. That’s why most people think ink is the most difficult art medium.

    In those days a Bic pen was the most available and came in black, blue or red. As a ballpoint pen artist my big break came along when Lindy Pens started to manufactory gold, brown, red, orange, pink, purple, blue, peacock blue, blue-green, black and yellow-green. That’s why I have more multi-colored ballpoint pen drawings published worldwide than all others here on the WWW for the past nine years.

    Even though Pen and Ink has been around for over four thousand years dark, rich or brilliant colors never exited. India ink produced a great black ink yet most other colors were rather weak and that met no competing with all mediums. A ballpoint pen’s ink is the only oil based in history therefore the first to produce dense coloration. That’s something new, innovative, exciting or something to bring pen and ink a colored art medium!

    Lindy pen really helped me develop colored pen and ink or my ballpoint drawings. I began using my ballpoints for sketching people or places out doors. Around three and a half thousand of those go completed while residing in California. Working outdoors brought information or people from many other places in addition to brilliant suggestions. Most people never know or saw of colored ballpoint pen inks, flattered me beyond belief as well as providing much moral support!

    Classical Realism according to me is the most difficult form of art especially if its completed with ink! I therefore found great delight in learning how to draw accurately. Several decades went into studying, practicing or applying that train of thought. Once I obtained colored ballpoint pen much changed for this guy or artist. Immediately my love of color took over That means doing deep, rich or brilliant colored pictures took place.

    I realized that thousands of years went by without colored drawing inks. That meant I could really bring on change or impact the art community with something new and exciting especially the Pen and Ink art movement. This year will mark my first decade as a publisher of colored ballpoint pen art. That takes in my works plus those I’ve located by other artists from around the world. I focused on producing powerful, bold or impacting colors far more than my previous drawings.

    My pictures take in many, many realms of society. That indicates I didn’t play politics in deciding my topic matters or portraits. Variation was my major concern doing the first forty years as an artist because that would enable my growth, development or success then and now. Today, I have more artworks, colors, styles, techniques, mono imagery, half tones, sketches, animated, digital, video ballpoint pen artworks published than all others in history via the Web!

    Developing, advancing or introducing what a ballpoint pen can do as an art medium is what my American folk art program called, Ball Point Pen Art, BallPoint Pen Art is all about ladies and gentlemen. The three major traits of a ballpoint pen art half tones, brilliant colors and long flowing lines. I’ve produced mixed media ballpoint pen art instead to demonstrate advance our movement or to make it fit into today’s infrastructure. There’s more media or mediums available within the art community today therefore displaying such works brings me to the cutting edge as an artist.

    This Pen and Ink site is being developed so that inkers and fellow ballpoint pen artists have a place to see what is being completed with thee most sold instrument in history. I’m married, have a son and three grandchild that get this site, my name and many other peoples art pieces to work with throughout they’re lives. Nine years my Microsoft Network group sites were the most published ballpoint pen art on the Web. That makes me the leader of the Ball Point Pen Art Movement worldwide and which is now part of my families heritage, amen.

    People need hope and something to inspire us in order to face new ideas. Our museums, galleries, books, magazines, journals, public places, offices and shop aren’t for the most part displaying ballpoint pen artworks or drawings therefore a place like this is critical. You can get something going if you don’t have a product, service, program, information, stats and worldwide support. Pen and Ink has a four/five thousand years past or history and that means countless billions of people are already using pens therefore we have tremendous interest focused on our imagery!

    I started drawing with a ballpoint pen in 1968. While I was still in high school. In those days I carried paper and pens everywhere I went, therefore over four thousand sketches or drawings got completed. Practice, practice and practice is what it took me to become better at drawings and nothing else. I started off with a black and blue ink then obtained red plus green. Years later I discovered Lindy Pens that had twelve colors including brown and gold which really inspirited me to say the least. I have more colors within my ballpoint pen drawings than all other artists on the Web for the past nine years as of this month. March 2009 will mark my tenth year on the Web as an International publisher or artist!

    I was raised as a military brat therefore moving around became a way of life. Having a portable art medium was very valued because creativity could continue no matter what took place throughout my travels. Ink helped me become bolder, confident, skilled and inspired so progress and much happiness came my way while producing works in public because of the thousands of people coming to my side for a peek. Drawing outside in my opinion supersedes using photo’s or objects indoors because of the lighting.

    Pen and Ink helped elevate mankind’s entire history. Manuscripts, books, the bible, treaties, poems, songs, checks, carbon copies, drawings, documents and many other extremely important things throughout history got produced via some kind of a pen. How many of those things have you seen completed with oil paints. Oil painters always say, Oils are King of the fine arts. Well pens are the greatest writing, drawing and carbon copy makers in history plus are used to run the world not just a fine art medium. Pen and Inks are the King of kings!

    Go write a check, letter, post card or sign a treaty with your oil paints. Let's pretend we have wisdom, a brain or some form of intelligence when it comes to such matters.

    Hopefully many of you folks will bring out your ballpoint pens to produce another fantastic ink drawing and produce history. Please show me a camera-ready medium that can out produce the ballpoint pens extra-fine or fine half tone lines!

    The Bic (Stationary) Pen Company indicated several years ago that they’ve manufactured their first hundred billionth ballpoint! It seemed that countless billions of people throughout history have doodled, scribbled, sketched, drawn, illustrated or completed inklings with a ballpoint pen. I saw that as a phenomenal achievement therefore promoting it’s artistic values became a full time project. Nine years thus far went into publishing artists, artworks, stats, ISO/DIN or colored ink information for those interested.

    Ballpoint pen animation, video, comics, illustrations, digital art, interactive art, commercial layouts, blogs, slide shows, sites, drawings, sketches, doodles, inklings or other art formats have been produced by me, in order to demonstrate how versatile a ballpoint really is as a medium. Integrating ballpoint pen art into society or our social network will clearly benefit all those using this medium, instrument and movement.

    I’m currently publishing 155 different ballpoint pen artists from around the world to let visitors see many techniques, styles, variations, colors, images or expressions all in one location. People can rap their minds around something until they actually see the real deal. I therefore accumulated the highest level of artworks possible in order to see quality or things that can inspire others.

    A good ballpoint can produce a half mile long flowing line which increases spontaneous creativity as never seen before in art history. That mean your finished product is unique or unlike all other art mediums therefore something very special. That means the artist shouldn’t be comparing it with other mediums or media because it can stand on its own. That also means capturing action, motion, nature, animals in a field or other none stable objects can become far more enjoyable and accurate.

    A ballpoint pen is the only pen in history that uses an oil based ink supply that can produce a half tone line. A full tone ink producing half tone lines is a revolutionary factor and something very important. An extra (ultra) fine ballpoint tip produces the most subtle (detailed) graphic line in history. That’s important because it elevates the sensitivity level of graphic art in the world or throughout history!

    A fine ballpoint pen tip can produce more halftone lines per inch than all other camera-ready instruments because it’s the sharpest or thinnest tool on the market. The tip never gets dull, produces an amazing half tone line and is extremely effective at shading, polishing, refining, coloring or rendering while drawing. Its like drawing with a nail.

    The third important feature of a ballpoint pen is its colored inks. Pen and ink has been around for over four thousand years or longer than most all other art mediums. During those thousands of years other art medium or media came along plus introduced colors instead of a pen’s black or brown inks. Inks used in all pens were water based which means dark rich colors never existed until a ballpoint came along. An oil based ink could carry far more pigments therefore deliver a much darker thicker color.

    I think pen and ink took a major hit because colors never got manufactured or produced. Today a ballpoint pen has ISO/DIN archival inks, colored ink, stronger tips plus a large ink reserve which means sales sky rocketed. A ballpoint pen also produced the best carbon copies therefore it became the most sold writing or drawing instrument in history.

    Along the road of life I noticed that not very many galleries, museums, public places or office buildings had pen and ink artworks hanging on their often empty walls. That means almost never would there be any ballpoint drawings displayed outside peoples homes and that is a scary concept seeing that so many billions of the pens have been sold.

    Another odd observation was that very few artists got noticed working outside throughout my travels. How could so many people own a ballpoint pen and not be working throughout the public or have those pictures hanging on their walls are what I’ve always wondered. Where did all the creativity go?

    How can several hundred billion ballpoint pens get sold yet so few artworks produced by them hit the market place. How often do you see ballpoint drawings in a museum, gallery, book, publication, store, magazine, periodical, hospital, office or public building and home is what I’m thinking? In fact, how many original artworks can be found throughout our modern day society?

    Today there’s over one billion people registered with the WWW via an email account or some other services, which is pretty good considering peoples nature. How many times have you searched for something on the Web and not found it? If you did find something how in depth were those results? Pen and Ink has been around four or five thousand years yet no large networks represent that art medium. What a very sad statement or observation that is my friends!

    Nine years ago I came to the WWW and found no major ballpoint or pen and ink sites of networks. That’s why the art community is weak, powerless or declining throughout society just like all other none advertising businesses or sectors within country. Most artists (85% of the people) within the USA never took a business coarse in school or elsewhere therefore little is actually known about our capitalistic society. That’s why they don’t know contracts, accounting, advertising, marketing, sales, public relations, promotions, production or publishing!

    That’s in part why I developed my folk art program called Ball Point Pen Art, Ballpoint Pen Art or Ballpointpenart. That program provides a foundation for all the billions of people drawing with a ballpoint pen around this world or throughout time. Oddly enough my network is larger that all Pen & Ink sites as well. Why isn’t every art medium represented with a large site, forum, network, society or organization?

    Look in a phone book, directory or here on the Internet and find an industry other than art not represented. Is there an organization or society representing every art medium, media or instrument that represents those using such a device. Why isn’t there a national art data base representing fine artists and the works? That would be inspire creativity, production, sales, artists our culture, society and nation plus traditions!

    It seems today people put a price tag on everything yet value nothing. Many artists produce after work or as a hobby and regular sales via a local, district, state or national art data base would strengthen the art community. Artists using pens or ballpoint should strive to obtain ISO/DIN archival inks and paper to enhance the life of the artworks. If artists stop using colored or archival inks the manufacture will simply discontinue that product line. They’re interested in sales or money therefore your support is vital.

    For the past nine years I’ve published more ballpoint pen artists or art works than all others in history plus information pertaining this remarkable instrument bar none. That’s “New Worthy” or art history in the makings as are my endeavors! Introducing the largest undeveloped art movement in history is what places me in art history as well as being a ballpoint pen artist!

    Ballpoint pen art infrastructure internationally!

    DEVELOPING A BALLPOINT PEN ART INFRASTRUCTURE INTERNATIONALLY!

    Pen and ink has been around for about four or five thousand years and a ballpoint pen commercially from 1938 via the Biro brothers out of Argentina. Several hundred billion ballpoints have been sold worldwide from that date which makes it the most popular or greatest pen sold in history.

    Today, the world is controlled by those using a ballpoint pen plus countless millions of artists draw with them to hang on their walls. Pen and Ink totally dominated the market for thousands of years yet drastically declined in popularity during an Industrial Revolution that introduced many new media as well as medium. Things have never been the same ever since.

    In the electronic world words like modern, new, the latest advances are in high demand while in the art community such is considered worthless because everything has to meet a test of time! Double standards certainly decrease creative intensions or advancements within the art world as do a lack of investments. Everybody loves art yet nobody likes and artist. Maybe, that’s why people tell artists that they’ll be worth something after their dead.

    Many other ballpoint pen artists are just doing black and white drawings while I’m an International leader at introducing what a ballpoint can do as an art medium, instrument or medium. Integrating ballpoint pen art into societies infrastructure is a difficult task because it often takes money, a name, popularity and recognition to make it all happen and those things don’t come till after it works. Needless to say, most people live for money and that indicates very limited actions will be taken place until it starts coming in! People put a price tag on everything and value nothing

    Needless to say, a ballpoint produces pen and ink drawings. However mixed medium or media brings in a totally different crowd or field of interest. That has something to do with six plus billion people, many cultures, traditions or ethnic groups from around the world. Today’s media brings on many new markets or avenues as does the WWW. The more mediums an artists handles the greater the his audience therefore mixing things up can increase ones popularity.

    1. Publishing: 800 ballpoint artists, 5,700 artworks, 153 videos (archiving ballpoint pen art history) Usually, archives. documents or records relating to the activities, business dealings, etc., of a person, family, corporation, association, community, or nation. I’m documenting ballpoint pen artists so that people worldwide have a clear knowledge of what a ballpoint pen can do as an art medium, instrument or movement. It’s also a wonderful way to produce and record Ball Point Pen Art, BallPoint Pen Art or Ballpointpenart history for those here or yet to arrive.

    2. Commercial layouts: letters, numbers, symbols, pictures, prepared, done, or acting with sole or chief emphasis on salability, profit, or success: a commercial product; His attitude toward the theater is very commercial. Around 85% of the American people have never taken an economic or business oriented class that should indicated such practices are really limited which is pretty sad in a capitalistic society. I’ve posted commercial layouts so people will realize how a ballpoint pen drawing can be used in advertising.

    3. Animation: motion, vigor, energy; enthusiasm, ardor; exhilaration, sprightliness. The Internet currently has over a billion people an action is a large part of the game so adding motion or animating some of my artworks was in order. Add some action to your art and get involved.

    4. Video: special effects, a program, movie, or the like, that is available commercially on videocassette, Internet format ect. Upgrade your act by using another media to display your medium can increase getting out the word pertaining to what you’re doing.

    5. Slideshows: displaying a row of pictures, A slideshow is a display of a series of chosen images, which is done for artistic or instructional purposes. Another pleasant or easier way to show views your artworks.

    6. Blog: blog, short for web log, an online, regularly updated journal or newsletter that is readily accessible to the general public by virtue of being posted on a website. Blogs typically report and comment on topics of interest to the author, and are usually written and posted using software specifically designed to facilitate blogging; they include hyperlinks to other website and, often, photos, video clips, and the like.

    7. Sites: A website(s) that will display your programs, pictures, stats, information, sales, promotions, marketing or public relation interests.

    8. Digital imagery: A digital image is a representation of a two-dimensional image using ones and zeros (binary). Depending on whether or not the image resolution is fixed, it may be of vector or raster type. Without qualifications, the term "digital image" usually refers to raster images. New software makes it easy to alter, vary, change or rearrange your originals and that opens many new markets or fields of interest.

    9. Illustration: An illustration is a visualization such as a drawing, painting, photograph or other work of art that stresses subject more than form. Art works that tell stories and through the use of backgrounds.

    10. Cartoon/Comic: a sketch or drawing, usually humorous, as in a newspaper or periodical, symbolizing, satirizing, or caricaturing some action, subject, or person of popular interest.

    11. Design/Interactive: of or pertaining to a two-way system of electronic communications, as by means of television or computer. A computer connected to the WWW enables me to interact with my software and other places around the world in real time as never before. That means I can be creative, productive, get involved plus publish things around the world all at once from my keyboard or desk top.

    12. Classical Realism: treatment of forms, colors, space, etc., in such a manner as to emphasize their correspondence to actuality or to ordinary visual experience. In other words I can draw pictures that have great details of things found around me or in nature. Most people consider realism completed with ink is the most difficult form of art.

    13. Impressionism: a theory and practice in literature that emphasizes immediate aspects of objects or actions without attention to details. I’ve posted many impressionistic artworks because I’m present a style and many brilliant colors now being offered via a ballpoint pen.

    14. Abstracts: Having an intellectual and affective artistic content that depends solely on intrinsic form rather than on narrative content or pictorial representation. I’ve posted some abstracts because they’re simply fun to do.

    15. Multi-colors: an arrangement or design of many colors. I have more colors in my ballpoint pen drawings than any others for the past nine years on the WWW and that makes me the leading colorist. Colored inks finally places our medium on the same playing field with many other art medium already being enjoyed through the society.

    16. Mono, two or three colors: Many of my pictures are red or mono colored. In 1968 black and blue inks were the only two ballpoint pen inks available or on the market. Red came next and that was followed by the color green. I worked with what was available plus learned how color worked by doing many mono pictures. Adding one or two other colors took places along the way.

    17. Black & White: Pen and Ink started of with black or in some cases brown inks. India ink became a world wide favorite because it was very dark or black plus was archival. I think a ballpoint pen started off using black inks then introduced blue which at the time couldn’t be used on official forms or often thought unacceptable in school reports or artworks.

    18. Domain Names: ballpointpenart.net, .com, .us, .org I was the first to register ballpointpenart as a domain name which really helped start our art movement get going via the business world. An identity certainly is a wonderful thing.

    19. ISO/DIN Archival Ink list: investment value I spent years researching ISO/DIN ballpoint pen inks, pens or refills in order to help fellow artists locate materials that would increase they’re works value. After all, money is the milk of politics!

    20. Colored Pen and Refill list: Colored inks are very valuable as well because they make art pretty as a picture plus add realism to our works. After all nature does arrive in living colors.

    21. Steadfast Light test results: Over the years many changes have taken place pertaining to ballpoint pen inks. Recording those variations, improvements or the newest synthetic resins is important for investors, artists, collectors or historians seeing time is often part of the game.

    22. Ballpoint Pen History information: Another thing I researched was the history of Pen and Ink as well as invention of our ballpoint pen. Watching the development of the greatest drawing and writing instrument was an interesting process as is seeing how art movements got started throughout history.

    I started doing art around fifty-five years ago my friends. Crayons, paint by numbers set, pencils, colored pencils and ballpoint pens introduced me into the art world of fun. Tempera paints, water colors, construction paper, glue, colored chalk, felt tip markers and charcoal elevated me to the next round of achievements. Clay, wood, metal wire, paper Mache, pastels, oil pastels, conte’, graphite, acrylics, pen and ink, copper enameling, metal sculpture, lighting, murals, pressed leaves, photograph, silk screening, enamel cuttings, leather, commercial layouts, lettering, digital, animation, design and producing video all added more feathers to my hat.

    Mix medium or combining media brings our art community together. The general public is rather limited to what they learned in schools. Applying those experiences to the commercial world, pricing, contracts, record keeping, shipping, insurance, museum or gallery presentations, advertising, marketing, sales, promotions, public relations or publishing is beyond most artists comprehensive level.

    Most artists are hobbyist, social butterflies, unorganized, not focused, uneducated or not money oriented therefore makes our community very weak as an over all political group. Many artists are so open minded that their brains fell out! They’re trying to enter into a capitalistic system totally unprepared as if that works in the job market. It seems like the many artists are their own worst enemy!

    Are you complacent, inexperienced, ignorant, shy or just plan not interested? The museums, galleries, publishers, media and investors all have degree’s, lawyers, advisers, appraisers and many others all working against artists for power, profit and control of the market. If you don’t know pricing, the game, have a name, reputations, backing, success or a great plan you’re pretty well at the mercy of the establishment. What do you think my friends?

    Do you remember the old days before the WWW came into existence? When most artists never got published, recognized, displayed, bought or because famous until after their death. The good old days. Today an artists can sit at home, in the office or elsewhere and publish their ideas, plans, art works or biographies worldwide as never before.

    The Internet opened up the world for an artists because we could now display our expressions or art internationally, bring in a profit, get exposure, increase popularity or become an international figure without publishers censorship. It also meant that an artist could reach an audience of a billion people plus receive most of the gains from the fruit of their labor.

    Most publishers and galleries demand a lion’s share of your profits in order for their services or business side of the relationship. That meant the artist does a picture and the establishment does all the rest. (Advertising, sales, marketing, distribution, public relations, promotions and the rest.) Today an artist on the Internet needs to do each and everything within that process. So artists need to wear more than one hat, increase their business skills, become better writers or up grade their level of sophistication.

    How many networks, portals, search engines, sites, message boards, groups, forums or places are you indexed with are so things each person on the Web should be asking themselves. Google your name or programs to see how popular or easy it is to find you. Are your artworks surfacing on the Image or video search findings? The Internet has to be programmed with information if such is expected to be found on search engine results. Your charming personality, cute smile, lovely smile or social network doesn’t bring results on the WWW my friends. Laziness doesn’t pay off on the Web or throughout our business sectors. Pretend don’t work off people.

    Most people come to the Internet to join several art forums and maybe build a site or have one built for them. They post their artworks of photos, post some information, a brief biography then set back for the world to come their way. Some seem to forget that nobody around the world has a clue of their existence, never saw anything they did or couldn’t find such materials on a search engine result.

    There’s a billion people registered with the WWW and over all none of them know of your existence people. Why should they? What makes you different, great, desired, wanted or worthy of the worlds interest with so many others selling their materials or artworks? You might be fantastic or a legion in your own mine yet a nobody to the rest of the world.

    When people do a search on the Web what should they inter into the box to find you? People either search particular names, places or topics. Which of those will your artworks surface on? If you are found is it on the top of the first page or last on the thirtieth? If you’re with a forum or have a site is your art easy to find or navigate? In the art world a name is very important therefore your should be easy to find as should your art. Stop thinking others are going to do your business, run your advertising campaign or marketing programs. Put on your thinking caps and get busy getting busy.

    Conceptart is a major art forum therefore I’m going out of my way to make certain ballpoint pen art is being represented by someone that actually knows what’s going on.

    Enjoy all the information my friends, Jerry Stith

    Haha, wow. You´re completely shameless. Kind of wondering why this is still going on though, it´s basically spam.

    Wooooowww. Ballpointpenart is back?! I thought this was dead. I remember the original thread having been listed in "worst of CA" like 2 years ago alongside insect battle.

    advance the ballpoint pen art movement
    Ballpoint pen is a medium... not a movement. I'm very happy that you found a medium that you excel at and enjoy, but a medium and a movement is not the same. For instance, pop art was not "print making art" though that was a favorite medium of the movement.

    But then again, it's been 7 years. Who am I kidding trying to explain this?

    When am I ever going to need to draw upside down?
    When you get kidknapped by pirates who tie you by your ankles upside down in the gallows and you need to write a message and draw a map to your location then hide it in a bottle that you sneak into the trash knowing that because they're pirates that don't care about the environment it will be dumped into the ocean. You will then realize with sinking despair the tragic flaw in your plan that thousands of bottles are thrown into the ocean every year and no one ever bothers to take them out making the chances of someone finding your message next to none so you console yourself by drawing upsidedown on random scraps of paper to pass the time.
