Enjoy these black and white illustrations from MiddleGate...

I use a very fine crow quill pen (also known as a nib pen or dip pen) and black India ink on 140 lb. cold press watercolour paper—heavy paper with a slightly coarse texture. Once illustrations are inked and coloured, they're scanned and cleaned up using Adobe PhotoShop.
