Chasing that Turkey!

Happy Thanksgiving, and welcome to the inaugural BigDumbAnimal blog post!

Here is a 5x7 ink drawing on Ampersand Claybord, my medium of choice these days.
Claybord is an 1/8 piece of masonite which is coated with a smooth white clay, allowing you lay down ink as thick as you like while still having the flexibility of removing it with a sharp tool.  This is almost identical to scratchboard art, except that instead of starting with a black board and removing the surface to reveal white, I draw black on the white surface and then scratch away when I need to make corrections or integrate texture.
After the drawing was completed, I scanned and colored it with photoshop and a Wacom tablet.
