for those of you who haven't used or have heard of scratchboard,
it's basically like a piece of posterboard (or clay) with a layer of
ink on it that you scratch/etch away with a tool with the fine tip
like that of a needle. it's really fun, but EXTREMELY tedious!
it's also a bit of a mind trip because you have think backwards...
you don't just draw the picture, you have to draw the negative of it
(light areas, instead of dark)
sorry the gorilla's kind of blurry, i am sans scanner right now
and my camera couldn't get it just right
