Almost all my black-and-white bird illustrations have been produced for use in printed media: books, ads, articles, or catalogs. My favorite materials are white Esdee British Scraper Board painted with black india ink. The illustration board is coated with a thin layer of Chinese white clay. Using a small tool specifically designed for scraper board, the black ink is removed to show the white below. Another name for this type of illustration board is scratch board. Please inquire for one-time use or purchase of the original (if available).
