Though gel pens might remind you of your time at school, an artist named Nico Dauk finds so much more use for this art medium than just doodling all over the notebooks.

Nico, who resides in New Mexico, probably finds the inspiration for her cool drawings in the vibrant local sceneries. Her favorite form for the colorful images being psychedelic and abstract art, the neon gel pens suits the theme just perfect. Though since she's been drawing this colorful art for years, her most recent creations are in wood-burning technique, which gives more subdued, earthy color palette.

Behind Nico's colorful drawings lies a difficult story - some years ago she fell really ill, and the only thing that kept her going while bed-bound was her pen art. Now that she had overcome the illness, the pen art stayed with her, and she has decided to share it with us.

Now scroll down below to see the fantastic pen drawings for yourself!

You must go through a lot of gel pens. Might I recommend Color It. They have a set of 48 gel pens that comes in a nice case and has a set of refills with it. If you use those up you can just buy a set of refills. As far as I know they are the only ones who sell refills for gel pens. I too am an artist and have ordered supplies from them. https://www.colorit.com/collections/gel-pens/products/premium-48-gel-pen-set-with-case-refills-and-box
