Nick Tankard

Nick Tankard is an artist and Illustrator working from his studio in the world heritage village of Saltaire, West Yorkshire.

His work is produced using a cross-hatch technique with a black fine line pen. Layer upon layer of small ink lines are built up to form structure and shape. It is a time consuming process. He cross-hatches in one direction, then turns the image around and adds another layer to create shade and depth, whilst also leaving elements untouched to hint at light and space. The image may turn ten to twenty times until it is finished.

For this series on New York and Paris, Nick has attempted to create a vision of the bustling metropolis that is familiar yet mysterious.

Nick has illustrated several children's books producing full-page interior illustrations in his pen & ink cross-hatch style.
