Hyper-realistic drawing using charcoal sticks of a Chimpanzee contemplating life, sitting on its haunches chewing on a stick, similar to a man smoking his pipe!

Every detail is expertly presented, the character, the sitting position, individual hairs, the wise eyes watching the world.

All JD’s artworks aim to capture every detail, something which stems from a zeal for perfectionism. When the viewer looks at the artwork JD wants them to not just see the drawing but also experience the character of the subject.

JD is greatly inspired by hyper realistic pencil artists such as Caden Fiddler, Arinze Stanley and Jono Dry. Prefers to work mainly with graphite, carbon and charcoal pencils although carbon pencils are rapidly becoming a favoured medium due to their ability to produce a matte finish whilst maintaining the precision and control of graphite.

Some drawings can take 80+ hours to complete, however once lost in the process of drawing one hour can feel like only a minute.
