Eri Griffin | Pen & Ink Illustrations | Black & White Drawings | Art and DesignBen Tripp is the son of illustrator Wallace Tripp, who worked entirely in pen, ink, and watercolor. Not just any pen and ink, but steel-nibbed dip pens and India ink. From a very early age, Ben was trained in the use of these traditional media. It's even possible that Kit Bristol's last name is an homage to Bristol board, a very heavy paperboard originally manufactured in Bristol, England. It was the surface everyone in the Tripp family worked on until computers came along. When Ben worked at Walt Disney Imagineering in the early s, he had access to some new, experimental tools like Photoshop, dye sublimation printers, drawing tablets, and color-accurate monitors. It wasn't long before the acrylics, guache, ink, markers, pastels, and oils ended up permanently languishing in the paint box.

Ann Maglinte, Artist Welcome! I did my first book illustrations and maps for a series of fantasy books written by Bay Area author Teresa Edgerton in the 's and 's. I did pen and ink illustrations of "Tolkein Style" maps with borders around them featuring scenes from the books.

The first is called Composting Abbie , and is the story of a Blue Whale that died and was washed up on the shore near Ft. Bragg, California.

Pen and ink was historically a popular medium for illustrators in the days before CMYK printing technology. This limitation led illustrators to focus on drawing and block colour in simple black and white. The first half of the century produced some astonishing pen and ink illustrators working for book and magazine publishers. The tradition has continued to thrive in contemporary illustration with huge crossovers in style between the two generations. Here I've complied 10 illustrators' work, grouped in two sections - 'The Oldies' and 'The Newbies' - to inspire and celebrate this amazing medium. Best known for his jazz album pen and ink illustrations, David Stone Martin was born in the US in and died in He produced more than illustrations for Mercury, Asch, Disc and Dial record companies.
