The Scratchy Brain Cell

Scratch Board Illustration By Doug Ashby
The scratch board. Oh how I love thee......let me count the ways. Well I guess that is a bit dramatic. Anyway I do enjoy working in this particular medium. However, I do not do nearly enough of it.

It is harder to come by in many ways then the simplicity of paper and pen, and in the end it is much more precious. If you mess up there really is no turning back and your investment in seems greater then simple pen and paper. However, I feel that my artwork translates very nicely to it.

This artwork is a depiction of a brain cell. A simple neuron. I have done a few of these and I have a feeling I will certainly be doing more in the future. There is something so very fascinating to me about creating art about the very thing that in the end creates the art. Sort of paradoxical in many ways. Perhaps in the past you have seen some of the other work I have done on this subject. If not, please stay tuned.

This artwork is for sale if you are interested. If you are then please have a look at it on my etsy page. I use etsy because it has been around a long time and quite honestly their system for presenting artwork to the customer, engaging with a potential customer and doing a transaction is very good. So if you would like, please have a look.

As always I hope you enjoy the art. I would love to hear your thoughts on that so please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Thanks, Doug.
