Ken Karl


Ken has been  drawing sport celebrities for several years.  He is a resident of St. Louis, Missouri and a graduate of Missouri State University.  Ken has been a professional artist for over 2o years.  He has been able to combine two of his greatest passions into one, creating memorable sports art.

All of Ken's work is done with colored pencil.  He has found that he can achieve rich degrees of shadows and highlights while still maintaining a high degree of realism and detail in that medium.  Ken uses a combination of colored boards, acrylic paint, and screen printing techniques to create his distinct backgrounds.  He loves the fact that very few people work in colored pencil.  Ken believes this allows his work to stand out.


His work is generally sized at 18 x 22 inches on mat board, when completed.  Of course, he can work on smaller sizes as well.  If you are interested in having Ken do a commissioned piece or have any questions concerning pricing; please contact him through his email.  Ken can be reached at or check out his contact page.

"The detail of Ken's work is incredibly realistic, he is truly money when it comes to his sports art!" -Steve Cash
