Self-taught American portraitist Jim Hicks has been drawing in other media for many years but discovered pyrography in 1996. His innovative use of chalk to enhance his pyrographic works produced the striking works shown here.

Jim has a webpage called Wood Art 211 for his pyro works and another for his drawings in other media (which you can find from the pyro page by removing the 'pyro' suffix from the webpage address when you're there).

Read about Jim Hicks in the Pyrograffiti 22 article illustrated with more of his excellent portraits of celebrities and animals in the March–April 2003 issue of the Woodcarvers Online Magazine.
