Artist Petra Hartl from Vienna runs an extensive and interesting blog titled ‘Hund und Kunst’, dedicated to dogs and/in art. My recent ink drawings of dogs and other animals drew her attention and after checking out more of my work she did a feature of it on her blog, titled ‘Inky Animals’. I'm very pleased with the view she takes on it and the effort she did to step into my work and describe it in such a poetic way.

My ‘Inky Animals’ series has been featured on iGNANT.
‘Inky Animals’ is an ongoing series of expressive ink-drawings aimed at catching form, expression and movement of animals with bold and minimal appliance of ink. They are all drawn/painted with wayward twigs, feathers, leafs and other unconventional drawing tools which compared to conventional drawing tools like fountain pen or brush leaves far less control over the flow of the ink, leading to a broad variation in the thickness of lines and also the occasional blob of ink.
iGNANT is an award-winning online magazine featuring the finest in art, design, photography and architecture.
