It was the simplicity of line that drew me to this illustration on a book cover of a travel book, published soon after WWII, with drawings by John Minton. I loved the way he builds up the picture with layers of lines – and no better way to get to know a person’s style than by copying it. The actual book cover is printed with green, blue and yellow ochre as well, but I was happy to keep my image black and white only. Line is the most basic element of art, yet it can create whole worlds- delightfully so. Happy drawing!
