Drawing: Artists and Ink

In drawing class we are currently working with ink so we'll look at two of my favorite artists who work with ink and use it in interesting ways. The first is the "Gonzo" artist Ralph Steadman who has a great loose style and is known for illustrating writer Hunter S Thompson's work and Flying Dog beer.  Take a look at some of his work, it's not totally consistent but it is consistently good!

The second artist is another great, Peter Beard who is known for mix photographs, drawings, and sketchbook collages together.  Peter lives out near Montauk when he's not in NYC or Africa and since much of his work contains nudity I included a few pieces below which are "school appropriate".
