I am blown away by so many master-level scratchboard artists that are producing realistic people and animals. A lot of the time, that type of work is what I am looking for when I search the net for ink-and-clay eye candy. On the other hand, I also have a soft spot for more rustic, conceptual work, especially if it’s cute. I ran across some cute pigs by Bryan Ballinger on www.breadwig.com. It looks like they were done on a tablet rather than traditional scratchboard. No matter. I think they are awesome.
