Below is the original 8×9 scratchboard piece. It was created nearly twelve years ago when I was in High School. I was on a scratchboard binge and this was the second Bob Marley piece I had finished. For those who don’t know, scratchboard consists of several layers of multi-colored clay, topped by a thin layer of ink. Once the ink is “scratched” away the color below is revealed. In can be an insanely tedious task, especially when using a stippling. The outcome is very rewarding for those with patience.

I am both humbled and honored to have my artwork posted on behalf of Bob Marley. And thank you for all the kind words. O N E L O V E
