Who could forget the pranks, the adventures, the sheer fun of Tom Sawyer? It�¢����s something every child should experience and every child will love. From Tom�¢����s sly trickery with the whitewashed fence �¢���� when he cleverly manipulates everyone so they happily do his work for him �¢���� to his and Becky Thatcher�¢����s calamities in Bat Cave, the enjoyment just never ends. Scott McKowen created these drawings in scratchboard, an engraving medium which evokes the look of popular art from the period of these stories. Scratchboard is an illustration board with a specifically prepared surface of hard white chalk. A thin layer of black ink is rolled over the surface, and lines are drawn by hand with a sharp knife by scraping through the ink layer to expose the white surface underneath. The finished drawings are then scanned and the color is added digitally.
