Wayne, PA - United States

Beautifully executed and wonderful work! Amazing detail!

Ira Shander replied:

Thank-you Meg. This was great fun to draw. So much variety and texture.

Danvers, MA - United States

great pen & ink. How do get your lines so straight? The perspective is perfect

Ira Shander replied:

It requires a lot of patience and time Paul. I've been using KOH I NOOR Rapidograph pens since art school. And that was when dinosaurs roamed the earth. Perspective is not hard for me. I've been doing it for a long time. Since I draw lot's of older stuff, I have to be careful with old photo research. All lenses distort perspective and points of view. So I have to be very careful. Sometimes if I need to I'll use a French curve or angle for placement and to assist with detail. Every drawing is different. Working out the textures and patterns and darks and lights can be tricky. Not every drawing comes out the way I visualized it in my head. There are many start overs. I like the looseness and freedom in your work. It has a lot of charm and feeling for place. I like your Victorians. They would be great as illustrations for a local guide.
