What is Scraperboard?

Scraperboard or scratchboard refers to both a medium, and an illustrative technique using sharp knives and tools for etching into a thin layer of white China clay that is coated with black India ink. Scratchboard can also be made with several layers of multi-colored clay, so the pressure exerted on the instrument used determines the color that is revealed. There is also foil paper covered with black ink that, when scratched, exposes the shiny surface beneath. Scratchboard can be used to yield highly detailed, precise and evenly textured artwork.

Can I request a private commission for a caricature?

Private comissions are always welcome, just contact me through the website here, or visit my facebook page.

All I would require is a clear photo or two that best shows a keen likeness. I will then draw up a rough sketch for your approval before rendering the final artwork.

Can I have permission to use one of your images in a blog / article

I'm always happy to discuss the use of my images in online and print articles, but please remember that many have been specifically comissioned and the rights for re-use belong with the owner. Contact me through the website here, or visit my facebook page.
