W. G. Easton - Artist, Illustrator
Above is a work on scraper-board by the illustrator W.G. Easton. I have always considered it an outstanding work, most people I show it to assume it is a photograph, or that it was produced by some photographic process - No, its just a talented man scraping white lines on a piece of board. The humanity of the subject contrasts with the cold clinical way he has used the lines to build up the picture. Finding virtually nothing of his work on the Internet I just had to put this up as an example of true craftsmanship.
