Scratchboard, also known as Scraperboard, is a black-and-white drawing medium. The board itself is a cardboard or panel with a thin veneer of fine, white clay covered by a layer of Indian ink. The drawing surface starts completely black. The drawing is made by scratching white lines through the ink with a sharp tool, and this is a talent Nicolas Delort has mastered.
Nicolas Delort, based out of Paris, France has taken the time to learn how to create delicious cinematic drawings that sort of remind me of comic books….or Sin City without the splash of colour.
