This year, while in between projects, I decided to open a contest where people - anyone - could enter to have a free portrait drawn of them. I thought it would be a good exercise on my part and better publicity than I would get buying Facebook (or other) advertisements. That turned out to be right on all counts.
Technical pens were the mainstay of the designer and illustrator's craft before the development of computer graphics. Now, many art enthusiasts are rediscovering the technical pen because its handiwork stands out almost magically against the bland precision of computer rendered graphics. My work has always been produced with the best technical pens and durable India inks available.
