Inner Station is a 14″x17″ pen and ink drawing, drawn using a .25 mm Rapidograph pen and black India ink. The initial design was created using a pencil, compass, ruler and protractor. After creating an initial drawing concept in pencil, I drew all of the detail with ink. All shapes are drawn completely freehand. This drawing is available in 8×10, 11×14, and 16×20 archival quality prints. The 16×20 print has the same dimensions as the original drawing, just printed on slightly larger paper.
This image is a reverse of Inner Station. When the original scan of “Inner Station” was made, the contrast and line weight of the image seemed pale and soft. It’s possible that doubling the density of the lines could solve this problem. However, while adjusting the image settings, I discovered the inverse of the image displayed the concept of the drawing more effectively than the positive. Now this is my favorite version of this drawing.
