Pen and Ink

I used a lot of brown paper, ink, gesso, oil paint, and only one nib. It was my favorite, it could do any line and it held a lot of ink. Interesting to work with these materials.

Osama's Legacy

Pen and Ink illustration for an article about 9/11. The article was hard to deal with since it was a little dry and not very interesting. The most interesting information I found on the article was the author's opinion on how the event divided the Muslim world from the Western world. I used that to portray him underwater cutting up a map. This was the very first illustration I have done with a pen and nibs and not with micron pens. It was difficult to control but in the end it was a good learning experience.
