For the first of my featured artist blog posts, I'd like to introduce you to a guy I met at this year’s London Tattoo convention.
It was a fairly brief meeting I'll give you that; but the enthusiasm I got from him was quite infectious. Completely self-taught, Karl Williams has an amazing eye for detail, and looking at his work to date, the patience of a saint. The dedication to reproduce his subjects in such photo realistic detail and, in a number of cases, in such small scale is testament to his incredible ability.

Karl Williams is an established graphite pencil artist specialising in photorealistic portrait work. Karl maintains an international client base for both original and reproduction pieces and has acquired a significant and loyal social media following. Karl has crafted a comprehensive portfolio of celebrities and influential figures and has received warm feedback from a number of his subjects including Formula 1 Driver Lewis Hamilton, UFC Champion Ronda Rousey and Spiderman creator Stan Lee.
This Yorkshire lad is no doubt, an incredible talent, and deserves to go really far in his artistic career. You can find him on all the usual social media outlets, and his official website has a store where you can purchase a great selection of high quality Giclee reproductions of a number of his 'famous faces' portraits and a few art prints as well.
Karl is available for commission work, so get in touch with him through his facebook page or his website.
