This portrait of Alex's nephew is one of many he has created with scratchboard, using a variety of metal blades to etch the likenesses of his subjects. The image is formed entirely with fine white lines (and in some cases dots) that he scratches into the black surface. Alex often uses scratchboard for portraits because of the unusual technical challenges it offers.
