Tim Jeffs: Chameleons Boxed Notecard Assortment

$16.95

Using black ink pens and colored pencils, American artist and illustrator Tim Jeffs has created a kaleidoscope of chameleons—part of his veritable ink zoo of intricately drawn animals. He begins each drawing with extensive research into the 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.” Contains 5 each of the following notecards: Jackson’s Chameleon Panther Chameleon Parson’s Chameleon Veiled Chameleon
• 20 blank notecards (5 each of 4 designs) with envelopes in a decorative box

Tim Jeffs

For Tim Jeffs (American, b. 1965), the delight is in the intricately inked details. From the great gray owl to the Chinese water dragon, once Jeffs decides upon a subject, he researches the creature’s habits, habitats, conservation status, and physical appearance. Using pen and ink and colored pencils, he creates amazing animal portraits on Bristol board. “Then,” the artist says, “I cover the subject with a styled pattern of my own creation . . . not so much photorealism but more of an impressionistic approach that creates a realistic view.” It’s the alchemy of science and creative license. His art inspires a connection with the animal kingdom. His illustrations have garnered worldwide attention and raised awareness for such organizations as the Cheetah Conservation Fund, the Seattle Aquarium, and the World Wildlife Fund.
