Early art and a prize winner
I was fascinated by scratchboard, a unique illustration board which had a special surface that could be worked on with a special tool after a drawing was inked. Scratchboard is still available today at artist supply stores.
Another drawing done on scratchboard.
One of my brushes split and I did this drawing with it.
This cartoon won first prize in the 1946 national Scholastic art competition. The drawing was done in ink using a brush. The tones when added with a litho pencil.
