Here's a mixture of published and personal works. I've produced a great deal of black and white work over the years in a variety of styles depending on timescale and the type of printing that would be used. Many of my published works have been created with a Rotring pen on paper, either alone or bolstered with pencil or wash . I enjoy the special challenge of producing a clear, unambiguous and immediate image using only black ink without the aid of colour or grey tones, representing texture, light and shade through hatching and stippling and thickness of line. For this I have drawn inspiration from my illustration heroes such as Gustave Dore and Virgil Finlay.
