Pen and ink is a traditional drawing technique using a dip style pen with India ink on paper. The fine tip on the old-fashioned pen is excellent for drawing varied lines and shading details. Some artists use a fountain pen with ink reservoir.

Animation is the term used to describe the process of showing sequences of static images in quick succession to create the illusion that the images are moving. Illustrators painstakingly drew separate images, slightly changing the moving parts with each image creating a movement series.

Transavanguardia

Italian version for Neo Expressionism that refers to an art movement that moved across Italy and some other parts of Western Europe between 1970s and 1980s. It simply means beyond avant-garde. The art movement came as a response to conceptual art's explosion that got many expression mediums by reintroducing emotion and reviving painting. Transvanguardia marked a turning point back to mythic imagery and figurative art which at the time, was rediscovered.
