Inktober had us completely amazed with all of the talented artists on Instagram sharing their work and posting on a daily basis.

Imagine our surprise when we started seeing a particularly specific homage to the Pigma Micron 01 pen tagged with #pigmainktober. The incredibly creative artwork featured Micron 01 as the subject of a whimsical series. Every day a new one would appear, each drawing more imaginative than the last. The wonderful artist behind the series is the very talented Italian illustrator Marianna Balducci. 

Now that Inktober is over, we have a wonderful compilation of Micron themed drawings, courtesy of Marianna! 

About the Artist
Marianna Balducci was born in 1985 in Rimini (Italy), graduated in fashion (2011, University of Bologna, Campus of Rimini), and is interested in learning one of the most innovative contemporary visual languages. She started working immediately after graduation as a freelance in communications, illustration and stopmotion video. She works with a specific focus on her city, often a source of inspiration of her projects. She’s the author of the stop motion video clip “Catalan” for the guitarist Dominic Miller. Her last works include the game-book “La Saraghina in gita” to introduce children to the city of Rimini. Recently she had a series of photographs “Temperini, pennini e schiacciapatate” exhibited in the Biennial of Drawing (Rimini, 12 April-8 June 2014).
