Hello, I'm new to Tinderbox...


I'm Yvonne, love pen and ink, but also work in vector. The above illustration is unpublished. I was exploring textures and tones in black and white. I had just come back from a holiday in Bali, where they are chess mad so perhaps was inspired by this. I work in old style dip pen and indian ink as much as possible, its much more tactile than the computer. I produce prints and greeting cards using both techniques. I love the Tinderbox blog and ethos, its refreshing and inspiring and I'm delighted to be on board.

welcome, welcome Yvonne!
love your pen & ink stuff (as a fellow pen & ink drawer!) Also really like your vector stuff, love how it's made up out of seemingly abstract shapes & colours but all comes together, like vector impressionism!

Thanks Damien! :) Yes its the detail and little clusters that make up the whole that fascinates me. What a lovely welcome!
