Pen & Ink Drawings

Any good illustrator will tell you that pen and ink work has been the backbone of illustration work for many years. The striking contrast of black ink on white paper make it the medium of choice for countless printing needs. Newspapers, books, brochures, posters, all utilize pen and ink art on occasion.

Another fascinating thing about pen and ink is the range of styles that can be accomplished in this deceptively simple medium. At Soper Studio, Patrick mastered a number of these styles in his early years as an illustrator. Cross hatching, straight line shading, and stippling are just some of the possibilities.

The samples below will hopefully give a taste of the variety of techniques and looks that are possible with this versatile medium.
