Today’s featured drawings were all done on cartridge paper with an extra sheet of paper underneath that acted as a cushion and made for smoother drawing.
Closer examination reveals that each drawing is composed of small lines, marks and dots. Building up areas with overlapping lines results in the illusion of tone. Angled lines are employed where movement is required.
