Pen and ink : Historically, pen and ink involved applying ink with a quill pen made from a large feather or hollow reed. Metal pens succeeded the quill in the 19th century. The technique enables an artist to achieve intricate yet clearly defined outlines, which translates well into printed posters. Pen and ink is commonly used for cartoons.
