Very skillful and tallented work. As a modern artist I've also adopted the ball point pen as my favorite tool for making art. It's definately an under-rated artistic medium. I'm not sure what U-Tube's problem is. Just another fascist influence trying to keep ball-point pen art down.

You should send a thank you to YouTube for making a big deal out of your work. I never would have seen this (awesome, btw.) without the outrage of their stupidity.

Btw, art lover, what kind of art do you love? Disney? Art hath no boundaries.

It's porn.
Keep it to yourself.
Would you show it to your 5 year old?
Why not?

Probably a fan mounting, less interesting than the video, but well :

Job with the pen is really awesome, but his focus on naked ladies showing tits or sucking in an "end of party like" is boring. I hope he will apply his wonderfull technique on other subjects.

He has the talent to become a great one, may inspiration and spirit come.

If this is porn, burqa are sexy underwear.

If Youtube, want to mamage parental advisory, they can create a cateroy for video with explicit contents, but censure this is really, really rude.

I d'on't want personnaly to live in a "disney" www -> should'nt we create a new www tool to be able to populate advanced contents ?

Knowing that Francisco uses a BIC pen to create his masterpiece makes me envy him! I cannot even create one of my own using tools specifically designed for this art work, how much more a ballpoint pen? Wow!
Well, about the censorship, though, it is really upon youtube's discretion.
