The Illustrated Ampersand

This ampersand illustration is a practice session. I plan to use this effect of rough surface and off registered inks on the next promo poster currently in the works.

This ampersand version is the one I decided to use for a 7.5" x 8" Giclée print on cold press watercolor paper.


  1. Hi Alan, I just became aware of your blog site today and have been going through a lot of it. It's very inspiring to me, please keep it going. You are a true master with the pen!

  2. Fantastic ampersand! Masterful use of effects.

  3. Cold press? Hot art. Cheers, Alan, Rand

  4. I am particularly fond of the ampersand, I could probably watch you draw ampersands all day.
