Allan Ace Adams is an American Scratchboard artist, we have seen this technique before here on DesignStack.  Just go to the top right hand corner of the page in the "Search this Blog" just insert Scratchboard and then search, you will get all of the posts we have featured.  The Scratchboard can be summarised as, sharp knives and tools that are used for etching into a thin layer of white China clay, that is coated with black India ink (Wikipedia).  This is Adams' definition "I explain to people that I'm scratching in the Highlights instead of the "darks" like you would with a graphite drawing".  Enjoy these lovely drawings of these beautiful animals.
