Have you ever looked at your own completed drawing and said, 'did that really come from me?' Well. That.

I was commissioned to draw this fuzzy critter in colour. Now I have to say, I was gifted a large tin of Faber Castell Polychromos, which sat on the side for weeks whilst I tried to garner the courage to use them! This submitted piece was my fifth completed drawing using them.

I. Love. Coloured. Pencils!

They felt so natural to use, the colour choices came easily and, layer by layer, my most accomplished drawing appeared. Many have said that they have mistaken it for a photograph. Is there any higher praise than that?

Incredible photo realistic ferret drawing
by: Loren Wiberg

I have been a ferret owner for over twenty years.

I have never seen a more compelling image of a ferret.

My first impression was...
"How was it possible to capture such a clear and well focused photo of this ferret"?

Ferrets are notorious for moving around and being difficult to photograph.

When I went to the website and saw that this was a drawing I was amazed.

A remarkable work of art by a very gifted artist.

Amazing artist
by: Nicci Cox

John is an amazing artist, so very talented.
Ive had my gorgeous late border collie Norman sketched by John and I was truly amazed at the attention to detail and perfect likeness to Norman. It makes me smile every time I look at it. It’s perfect. It captures his cheeky character spot on.

So much so that I am now having another sketch this time in colour of one of my other collies as a puppy. And then I’m going to ask John to draw my other 2 dogs and my chinchillas!

You will not be disappointed if you have a sketch commissioned by John. 🐾
