About the piece:
‘Here’s Johnny!’ was created purely by eye (no grids), in graphite pencil to give the sheen and shimmer of water, in contrast to the shark’s eye. This is produced using charcoal, allowing the surface to remain matt, black and very dense looking against the metallic shine of graphite. This means that wherever you stand in the room, the eye will remain fixed on you, against any play of light.
At least 50% of the proceeds from this sale will support the charitable work of David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation (DSWF) and our ground-based conservation partners across Africa and Asia.
