Scraperboard, like ‘Legend’, is good to convey an African or handmade feel.


With Scraperboard though, there tends to be more detail. Sometimes these two styles meld. Generally though, Scraperboard also has more texture within the shapes themselves. This leads to it looking far livelier than Legend, which tends to be more graphic and useful for icons with its lack of detail.

This info is here to help you choose between one or more styles, but I’m more than happy to discuss your creative issue with you personally with no obligation. Feel free to contact me. Scraperboard is a digital style, and I don’t offer the hand-scraped linocut or woodcut style.

Work here includes illustrations done for Cambridge University Press, Centrepeace, and RCCP.
