Pen and ink


i know there are a million and one of these alphabet-type books knocking around, i just wanted to decorate my new bedroom wall with some new stuff. I have enough room for 3 a3 pieces so I was going to do an A-B-C type thing - still needs some work though, as I'm not really happy about C and I don't even have a decent 'A' yet. I was just playing around with other letters though too, hence T for Tiger.









having been ill the last few days i found a blog with a whole collection of ronald searle's stuff - it's lovely, really quick free ink drawings. i think this is something you really have to get the hang of - i find it incredibly difficult to draw quickly but effectively in indian ink.
