Intricate Ink: The Art of Tim Jeffs 2018 Wall Calendar
Using black ink pens and colored pencils, American artist and illustrator Tim Jeffs is creating a veritable ink zoo of intricately drawn animals. He begins each drawing with extensive research into a given animal’s conservation status, habitats, habits, and physical appearance. He then closely studies its skin or fur but lets artistic license dictate the patterns, textures, and colors he applies. He enjoys “having the control of making it my own creation, and not just another photograph.” Jeffs does, however, pay photorealistic attention to drawing each creature’s eyes, which “give it a personality, express emotion and let the animal tell its own story as it looks back at the viewer.”
By day a creative director in publishing, Jeffs began sketching animals during his leisure time. His finely detailed drawings have garnered worldwide attention. Pomegranate also publishes Jeffs’s work in Intricate Ink: Animals in Detail
, a coloring book of fifty animal drawings.
