Here's a drawing that was commissioned by a friend of mine. Her son was into skateboarding at the time and this is a reproduction of some skateboarding artwork. The medium is pen and ink. For the dot patterns, I used Zipatone screens. Zipatone screens are sheets of clear, adhesive paper with dotted patterns printed on them. You use an exacto knife to carefully cut out the area you want to screen. Photoshop has made this process obsolete, but if I had the time, I'd use Zipatone more often. It's hard work, but it really gives the original artwork a clean, finished look.
