  5. Scraperboard





Scraperboard conveys an ethnic or handmade look


Scraperboard has more detail than Legend.

Sometimes these two styles meld. Generally though, Scraperboard also has more texture within the shapes themselves. So it is livelier than Legend, which is more graphic and useful for icons with its lack of detail.

Scraperboard is a digital style – I don’t offer the hand-scraped linocut or woodcut style. 

Work here includes illustrations done for Cambridge University Press, Centrepeace, and RCCP.

Other GRAPHIC styles: Cut-out, Icon, Legend.
