Hatching with Robert Crumb
Illustrated here are various styles of hatching. Some are combinations of hatching techniques distributed to create contrasting effects. In the work of Robert Crumb, for example, the artist hatches a background with perpendicular fine cross hatching and contrasts this with and area of contour hatching, implying different textures. The masterful use of the contrasting hatching textures can create great luminosity and imply color.
