Scratchboard (Knife) Drawing
Fantastic illustrations by Mark Summers. “Each drawing begins as a black square. After this, using a knife, I scratch white lines into the surface,” explains Summers.
Notes about the artist (from bio):
As a student at the Ontario College of Art in 1976, Mark Summers was introduced to scratchboard by the revered political cartoonist Duncan Macpherson. Soon after graduation, he began circulating his portfolio of portraits. His big break came with a portrait of Douglas McArthur from the New York Times Book Review, and he hasn’t stopped working since. Mark’s engravings in scratchboard have garnered numerous awards, exhibits, and a continually expanding client list that still includes regular features in the Book Review.
