For centuries pen and ink has been the mainstay of all architects. Many of these architectural drawings are still preserved in museums and in other institutions. Here began the art of pen and wash illustrations. I personally have seen and admired these ancient drawings.
Pen and Ink is the most wonderful way of illustrating pictures as it will always give the most crisp reproduction in any book or magazine. In 1949, while still at school, I was asked to produce an Illuminated Parchment, including calligraphy, from the mayor of our town, for the inaugaration of the Voortrekker Monument in Pretoria. It also included sketches in pen and ink.
Who knows, maybe after you have taken the course in pen and ink drawing, you may also be approached for illustrations in books etc. It is not impossible - we don't always know what's in store for us in the future.
