Ink Drawing

Pen and ink drawing is one of the most visually varied art practices in history. Dating back to ancient Egypt, ink drawing has been used over the centuries for many different types of art, from calligraphy to tattooing to art sketches and formal drawings. In modern times, ink drawings have been used largely for illustration, whether for advertisements, editorial cartoons, or inking comics. But the practice of drawing in ink unites artists through the use of many of the same ink drawing techniques including hatching, crosshatching, wash, and various forms of line.
