Bic pen masterpieces by Samuel Silva

Samuel Silva is a Portuguese ‘hobbyist’ that will leave you speechless for a variety of reasons. For starters, Silva produces all of his work with ballpoint pens, a fact I am still struggling to believe. As if that isn’t impressive enough, Silva states he is a lawyer by profession and only produces art as a hobby. Silva seems to be the whole package: talented, unique, and unbelievably modest.

UPDATE: We interviewed Samuel Silva, and here’s a sneak peek of what’s in store! [you can read the full interview here.]

How do you balance your work as a lawyer and your hobby as an artist?

I don’t. Like with any other hobby, if you have time for it good. You feed your hamster, or you water your bonsai, or you change the water in your fish tank… I draw in my free time, not all my free time obviously, too boring.

Recorded a cool, fun, funny, or inspiring video (or even better, all of the above!) that you'd love to have more people see? Well, we'd like to see it. And if we dig it, we'll turn it into a Found At E Minor (FAEM) video for our Facebook audience to enjoy. Check out this awesome recent example and submit your videos here!
