Hi-My name is Jon Tooley. I reside in Shiloh, Illinois with my beautiful wife and kids. I'm very blessed and extremely thankful that God has given me talent to draw.
Going back to when I was a young boy, my mom said that I would shuffle through all the crayons until I found the black crayon. I would only color with a black crayon. I guess that's why I'm not so good with colors but excel with pencil.
I have progressed through my art career with wildlife at the start and slowly merging with sports. I went through several sports art phases starting with baseball, then basketball (during the Michael Jordan era) and then football. My sole focus is now NFL players - past & present.
I sketch all artwork with a #2 pencil--nothing more. I am very passionate about art and football. I hope it shows…
