David Newbold's website, Twitter, and Imgur are filled with countless pages of comics and graphic novels. While these are stunningly rendered, I was immediately more captivated by his observational sketches. He uses walnut ink to create beautiful, sprawling, intricately detailed sketches while traveling throughout the world. In their sepia tone, they feel like a memory.

Newbold's skill with ink is exceptional. He brings out incredible detail in the foreground, creates shadow and texture with well-placed strokes, and paints appropriately subtle backgrounds. I’m completely envious of his confidence with ink!
