"I love hand drawn work, although these days I edit and develop it digitally. I try novel approaches with every commission, since every commission is a bespoke and
carefully crafted artwork"
Scraperboard is a medium made from card layered with a layer of fine white clay, and then a layer of black indian ink. The ink layer is scraped or scratched away to
reveal a high contrast white line. Stylistically it appears similar to a fine woodcut. It can be coloured or left in black and white.
( You can find out more about the history and process of scraperboard by clicking here )
Commissioning an illustration... ...may initially seem daunting, but the process is really very straight-forward:
we will discuss the brief in detail to focus on a direction for the project;
once detailed sketches are agreed, artwork is prepared in black and white line by hand, and then coloured and edited digitally.
Sketches and artwork are provided via email/FTP, and you can view progress on request at any stage of the project.
Pete is an illustrator who specialises in hand drawn,
and digitally edited, scraperboard artwork.
Quoting fees for a job…
...takes into consideration:
size, colour & proportions of the
intended printed artwork;
usage and territories in which it will be
reproduced, (eg. UK, EU or US)
& duration for which it will be required.
Please contact Pete to discuss your project,
or arrange a meeting.
