"I'm excited beyond belief to have found Jeff Brooks and his exquisite drawings," Roxanna O'Connor says in her latest newsletter to her jewelry customers. "His interpretation of aspects of the BDSM lifestyle is so soft and gentle that those viewing his prints automatically change any preconceived ideas about BDSM being a harsh activity." Visitors to O'Connor's site will find a selection of these prints currently available. All are sensual yet refined. Refined yet sensual.
To celebrate Jeff Brooks' addition to her site, O'Connor is featuring his Valentine Cards in a special Valentine's Day Gift Package. For $15, women gifting their mates get a masculine pendant on a leather string, a temporary tattoo, and their choice of one of Jeff's specially done Valentine's Day greeting cards. Men gifting their loves get the same package but with a necklace suitable for feminine wearing. The cards, according to O'Connor, are four and a half inches by six inches and are suitable for framing. "You're gonna love this guy's artwork!" O'Connor says.
"I have always had a good eye, a good sense of proportion and an ability to translate that through a pencil onto paper," Brooks says of his work. Fortunate to have parents who noted his skills, even at an early age, and who encouraged him, Brooks sketched everything that fell under his gaze. "And the more I drew," he says, "the more developed my drawings became."
Today, when he isn't adding to his portfolio of drawings and portraits, Brooks is putting pencil to paper as a Technical Illustrator for a major aircraft company. But, he says, "Portraits are my true passion. I feel they are a very unique product I can offer to people as gifts not only during the holidays but also anytime during the year."
And so Roxanna O'Connor has also added his portrait work to her site.
"All a person has to provide Jeff is one or two photographs," O'Connor says, "and he finishes with a gorgeous portrait in any specified size." The more photos provided, she says, the easier it is for Jeff to capture the essence of the subject. "He's not just copying a photograph. He's putting that person on paper as a living, breathing entity. His ability in doing this is uncanny."
Depending on the size wanted and the number of persons in the portrait, the cost for Brooks' portrait work begins at a mere $50. If the client wishes, he will also frame the finished portrait for a nominal fee. Those wanting a portrait done in time for Valentine's day are encouraged to contact the artist at the earliest possible date. He can be reached through O'Connors site.
