Traditional Fairy Tale Illustration

Traditional style illustration influenced by Golden Age illustrators such as Arthur Rackham and Ivan Bilibin.


'I have my Grandfathers dip pen which I use with ink in this traditional technique, colour is added using either ink or watercolour washes. I love the fluidity and slightly unpredictable nature of using pen and ink, it forces you to make confident strokes.

Modern fineliner pens are good for very detailed images where the end result can resemble an etching print.' MM

Fairy tale and fantasy scenes.
