Animal Drawings

These expressive charcoal sketches make for a great, modern centrepiece to any home. Each print is based on a hand-drawn charcoal artwork by British artist, James Hollis.

Animal art inspiration, quote from the artist, James Hollis: -

“I was drawn to charcoal art because it allowed me to capture movement and shape in a realistic, distinctive way. It also encourages a spontaneity and creativeness that leads to quick, bold strokes and inventive art. Filling a large, blank sheet with a charcoal artwork is one of my most enjoyable experiences. I barely notice the dark smudges on my hands and face until after the work is completed, and it’s time to clean up!”

Here are some interesting facts about charcoal art:
  • Charcoal was often used in cave paintings from about 28 000 years ago. The oldest known cave artwork is a charcoal drawing of a zebra.
  • Charcoal sticks used by artists are often made of willow, or other wood, which is slowly burnt to produce charcoal.
