Many of you will (hopefully) have read the article I did of coloured pencil artists on Redbubble.
It is an on-going project that I am constantly adding names to.
I am now planning to do something similar about pen and ink artists.
To commence, I am going to provide some details on a favourite artist of mine, Anita Inverarity
Anita has done some beautiful coloured work but at the moment she specialises in pen and ink drawings which have a natural charm that appeals greatly to me.
Here are a couple of her drawings and I’d ask you politely to go and see some more of her work in her portfolio
Here is a fantastic portrait Anita has done of another favourite artist of mine, Alexandra Felgate:
Like many people I am enchanted by the Alice stories and here is a great drawing of Anita’s showing the Cheshire Cat:
This portrait of Anita by Barbara Glatzeder leads me neatly into Barbara’s artwork:
Medused, by Barbara Glatzeder is a favourite of mine because of the way she has depicted the hair so well:
See more of Barbara’s work here
My friend Peter Tucker has joined us recently and he too does some cool pen and inks:
Here’s Peter’s portfolio
LTScribble is another good artist I like. Unfortunately, like many, her work is protected so I can only copy a small image:
The larger version can be seen here though
Catherine Howell has some marvellous work in her portfolio. Here is a pen and ink:
POWER OF LOVE by LinMarie is another good example:
Edgar Pleat … by Paul Compton
Pitts Plane by Woodie:
Here’s a really clever drawing by Ming Myaskovsky:
… and here is a link to a larger version
Here’s a great drawing of Chief Sitting Bull by George Sanderson:
…see more of George’s work here
Lynnette Shelley has done a great elephant with ink:

Here is a sample of Madvlad’s ink drawings:

Stephanie Smith produces life-like pen and inks and colours them digitally. Here is one she hasn’t coloured, so it qualifies as black and white ink work:
It’s protected work, so I could only show a small image, but I would definitely recommend a visit to Stephanie’s portfolio
I asked Anita if she knew of any good pen and ink artists I could include and she suggested Stephanie, but I’d just added her. Anita did suggest some other good ones though, such as Zombie Rust (Zombie and Rouble), whose work is illustrated here with a small image and a link to her portfolio:
See here for Zombie Rust’s portfolio.
Lynette K is another good artist Anita suggested:
See here for Lynette’s portfolio.
Genevievem is another good artist Anita reminded me of:

A wonderful example of what can be achieved using pen and ink is John Dicandia’s superb drawing of The Dark wood:

One of the coolest pen and ink artists on Redbubble is Brettisagirl. As I ama Dylan fan I have to show you her Bob Dylan portrait:
Now go and look at the rest of Brett’s fantastic work
John Dicandia has just added a superb example of penmanship with his The Dark Wood:

I’d advise you all to visit Dramirali’s Portfolio and especially read his profile to see how he began to do geometric drawing.
Here is an example of Arletta’s drawing.
Arletta has a staggering 55 pages of art in her portfolio for you to browse though.
Here is a tee-shirt design by AngelArtiste:
