Pencil Illustrations by Gavin O'Donnell

March 30, 2013

At the young age of twenty Gavin O'Donnell creates highly realistic illustrations with just a pencil. Drawing from the age of thirteen O'Donnell was greatly encouraged by his aunt who he'd visit in England. Returning back to Ireland O'Donnell couldn't put the pencil down, "I didn't stop drawing for a few years I must of created over a hundred drawings. I look back on a lot of these now and feel like vomiting but they were necessary to get to where I am now" Being inspired by artists Dirk Dzmirsky and Armin Mersmann, O'Donnell wants to perfect his craft of realism artwork and create time lapses of his pieces to reveal his process to inspiring artists.
