The pen is such a great medium because it is so organic; It's incredibly fluid and becomes an extension of yourself so effectively. It is also a medium I've thoroughly missed, having switched to digital mediums and using the pen as a basic sketch as opposed to an art form in itself.
Although still very sketchy, I enjoyed making these pieces, using a pen and studying a variety of animals. It's important to remember that a large part of art is studying. To understand the subject is key to creating a piece of art, from joints to shadow casting.
Possibly my favourite illustrator is Quentin Blake, with his organic strokes that have a mind of their own. Although I very rarely draw humans, I take a lot of inspiration from Blake and the Whole collection of Roald Dahl.
