Who... me?


Very very good Elmarie.

And beautifully scratched out it is. I’m sure she will love it.

Your technique has worked brilliantly, bet your friend was delighted

Thank you so much Richard, Paul and Heather. She was very happy with it and it was such a joy to make it for her.

You have really captured a character here! Well done!

Thank you so much Jean, he certainly has a twinkle in his eye!

Love the monochrome nature of scratch pad work - this is super with its close up view, very characterful.

Thanks Jenny, I really wanted to do him justice. Thanks for the great comment.

So effective Elmarie, he jumps off the page, wow.

Thank you so much Gillian!

And you did a fine job. I recommend you watch Reuben the bulldog on YouTube, if you like bulldogs: as who doesn't?

Thanks Robert, I will have a look!

Terrific impact in your work here Elmarie, I love it!

That face!!! Superb portrait

Thanks so much Frank, Diana and Linda, much appreciated!

My friend "dog-sits" this beloved bulldog and is herself crazy about animals. I thought it would make a lovely birthday present to gift her a scratchboard image of his adorable chubby face. Instead of my fancy scratchboard etching tools, I used a simple needle mounted in a ballpoint pen to scrape out the fine lines of his pelt.
