Juvenile Nazca BoobyDescription:
This piece was rendered using a classic scratchboard technique. Ink is applied to paper that has been thinly coated with clay. The ink is then scratched away from the clay using various tools to reveal the white beneath, allowing for extremely fine lines of white that cannot typically be achieved using other methods.
