Hi there! I'm glad to be part of this excellent blog, I was looking for a place where we could have discussion about art instead of just posting dumb pictures...
Start publishing today with last project I done for Le dernier cri's Mexico book. I just started doing scratchboard some months ago, using a scalpel (bistouri), then a round blade instead of usual cutter, this give me special shapes. So I can work lines but also something like a photographic fuzzy style.
Drawings there are mainly just real stuff, copied from old maya's drawings and old photos from statues... I just try to do it with my own hand, plus adding some details to complete. Though these original drawings are incredibly modern & perfectly managed by the artists (ref. is "Maya Iconography" Princeton Press). I'll post some more later.
