**Snow Leopard** Graphite pencil on paper

My new direction in art .This a finished pencil drawing I did in 2016.
Graphite pencil  on Strathmore paper 70 cm x 50cm
First time I had actually drawn a finished piece of graphite artwork since early 90s so I am pleased with this piece.
A whole new adventure in art.Different skills learnt  & different techniques.
This `jonsullivanart`site is just created  to showcase my various cover art and early years work from over the years but I was keen to give an idea to those that have followed my cover work and gives them an idea how I am occupying myself these days ;).Plus its a Nature theme so right up my street.
Working on many graphite projects at the moment but will be publishing them on a separate website specifically for my graphite work.
Coming next year when enough work is amassed.
Cheers folks!

Life Changing Film

 Something  much more important than Art to me is Animal Welfare
 Please watch this film .If you cannot watch because it is too sad and upsetting then
I would ask you to do the most important thing that can save animals lives and
that is to go Meat Free and Dairy Free.

Thanks you folks

^ Found this on tape ^ recently whilst browsing through old Camcorder tapes.From16 years back. The studio chaos .The job I was working on was for Wizards of the Coast - `Crown of Fire` ( Forgotten Realms ).Oil on Board - Undercoat stages).The days before I owned a computer and was sending sketches off to the publishers by fax machine. I will say I have embraced Feng Shui since this time..
