Ballpoint pen artworks created over the years have been favourably compared to art created using traditional art mediums. Low cost, availability, and portability are cited by practitioners as qualities which make this common writing tool a convenient, art supply. Scott Mackie started doodling from a very early age and all through school and art school. Originally from Aberdeen Scotland, Scott now works solely with ballpoint pen sometimes combined with spray paint on paper to create contemporary modern pieces.
Scott has also developed a fascination with historical documentation and incorporates these with biro drawings of animals to musical and movie icons.
