Pen and Ink

I've never illustrated a book in just black and white. But if we never tried anything new we'd still be in caves without indoor plumbing or microwaves.

A little planning at the beginning of a project can save a lot of time later. Ink is everywhere. I've been looking at book upon book of British magazine illustration, Punch to be exact. So much to learn....

I wish I could write as mysterious as a cat.
~ Edgar Allan Poe


  1. Thanks exciting, Maz, a new challenge! :)

    Hope all is well!

  2. I knew the pen and ink was reference to Poe - even before I scrolled down to see his quote.

    Good for you.

    Keep up the great work!
