Above are a few examples of some experiments on ‘scrapper paper’. This paper has a black coating on it and you scratch away at it to reveal the white. So the trick (if there is one) is to think in terms of negative space and draw the white. I really enjoy this stuff, it’s fun to work, you can achieve some very striking results and it is conceptuality simular to working chalk on a black back ground (or road surface).
These particular drawings are experimental images for chapter titles in a book that I am working on for Random House.
