Known for his unbelievably realistic drawings rendered in ballpoint pen, New York City-based artist Nicolas V. Sanchez discusses his technique and subject matter, which ranges from domestic scenes to farm animals. In the latest interview for Colossal Members, Sanchez draws connections between his family, memories of his childhood, and how those have shaped his identity.
