    Default Ken Hunt thread - engraving and artwork

    I follow Ken Hunt on Instagram and am happy to be communicating with him! I was sad that we lost touch after his Grandmaster class years ago and I was thrilled to find him posting his fabulous artwork on Instagram. He's KenHunt78 if you wish to follow him as well.

    Ken has graciously allowed me to share and preserve his drawings and sketches here in the Cafe. The man is a treasure trove of engraving history and we're extremely fortunate to have this.

    I will be posting engraving related pics as Ken posts them on Instagram. He has hundreds of fabulous drawings that aren't engraving related, so check out his Instagram feed to see his amazing art.

    Thank you Ken!!

    The bookplate with the coat of arms was engraved by Ken in 1953 when he was 18 years old and without magnification or anything other than a burin.

    Wow! Ken's work is genius. What would I pay for a compilation of his work in a coiled notebook? Please Keep on posting and thanks for informing us about Ken.
    Cheers
