C.J. Hendry

Austrailian illustrator C.J. Hendry makes it all look so effortless. Her stunning, hyper-realistic drawings of fashion’s iconic shoes, bags and accessories are almost unbelievable. The painstaking process of creating her large prints involves a handful of black pens, hours of work and buckets of patience – not to mention thousands of tiny black dots that come together to create the contours, shadows and reflections you see on the objects she illustrates. Hendry says she draws what she likes and is inspired by fashion and beauty. A look at some of her other work will reveal her penchant for illustrating animal bones as well.

Wow… just… wow. These are incredible. I’m definitely going to start following this wonderful artist on Instagram.

WOW…simply gorgeous! I’m a long-time Beekman fan—and a pencil artist, too. I’ve even drawn my treasured Beekman soaps and received a comment from Josh and Brent on my blog! They were kind enough to mention me on twitter that day and I got the most hits I’ve had before or since! I was so tickled to give Brent and Josh copies of those drawings when I met them at Williams-Sonoma in San Francisco a few years ago. What lovely people they are.

Hello Andrew. My wife and I are both artists. Lately Joan has been concentrating on metalwork jewelry while I’ve been roaming the countryside drawing and painting. Moving to our farm ten years ago gave me so many new sources of inspiration. You only have to walk out the door and a new subject manifests itself. Here’s a link to a few things I posted last year.
