Ahhh ink, I miss you

I was sent a link to some lovely Saul Steinberg illustrations today, he's one of my all time favourite illustrators, these images are over 60 years old and they still look contemporary.

I particularly like the hand drawing the drawing, ooh meta pictures* I've not thought about you for quite a while.

I miss the line quality that you can only get with ink and dip pen (or better still a stick/twig).

See the full article here, thanks Ferg.
