In fine art, the term "pen and ink" denotes a drawing technique involving the use of black and other 
coloured inks which are applied to a support (generally paper) with either a dip pen or a reservoir pen.  
This traditional, versatile media has been used by western artists since ancient Egyptian times, for 
sketches, finished drawings or ink and wash paintings.  It is also one of the main mediums involved 
in book illustration.
