Paint unicorn by Reptangle Paint unicorn by Reptangle
A real media drawing of a pinto unicorn , done in scratch board (the grey background is done in photoshop, the drawing really has a white background)
This was the very last of the scratchboard drawings I did for the Alberti Design print line, before Windstone started taking up all of our energy. We never published this one as a print.

Under the name Alberti Design ( my husbands company)we produced a line of prints of my drawings in the 70's and early 80's that were sold by the zillions in gift stores on the west coast of the USA.
We quit doing these prints when we started producing sculptures as Windstone Editions.The copyright on this is 2004 because that is when it was filed and first published online, but I did the drawing in 1983.

We do think about it occasionally, but we are too distracted by other projects.

I miss your 2-D art. I remember going gaga over it when I first saw it in the Dancing Dragon catalogue, ages before I could afford to buy any of it. The textures in your scratchboard pieces are so exquisite, particularly the way you captured that subtle sheen on the unicorn's neck.

scratch board is really fun to work with. but this looks so amazing! was it hard to do so much detail working *backwards*?

No it's easy. Scratchboard is great because it looks harder to do than it is.

I can't find the larger file I had of it... I took this from my Elfwood gallery. This is a photo of the original so it isn't extremely sharp anyway.I need to scan it properly.

How long have you been doing art as a living? Did you go to school for it or is it all self-taught? I keep expecting you to post up another masterpiece and say "I did this when I was five." ;)

Like just about everyone on here, I have been drawing since I was a blob. I was an art major in college... but learned virtually NOTHING that prepared me for being in business as an artist.I really learned how to do this just by doing it. I have my own, very inefficient method of working that I didn't learn from anyone else.

My husband knew, or figured out how to do everything having to do with producing this stuff commercially, its all home-grown technology.

I have been doing art full time for a living since... uh... 1978. Thank you for asking!

The business side of things is an art all its own... and not one I'm overly good at, myself. ;P
