Tim Jeffs: Chameleons Boxed Notecard Assortment

Availability : Ships regularly
Item SKU : 9181

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.”

Born the seventh of eight children, and from a young age fascinated by drawing, Jeffs was a national award–winning artist while still in high school. A scholarship to Parsons School of Design in New York helped Jeffs build a twenty-five-year career designing books, logos, and websites for Scientific American, Sunset Publishing, Time Life Books, and others. Jeffs began sketching animals for personal pleasure; his finely detailed drawings have gone on to garner worldwide attention.
