‘Ionic Bond Watches’ is Jeesoo Kim’s hyper-realistic pen drawing series. Jeesoo sees that watches and James Bond have a strong bond to each other, and believes both take great roles in modern history.
This series explores 3 most iconic bond watches based on utility, novelty and beauty.
This combination has been met with 100s of challenging hours and a great deal of contemplation.
“Spending days capturing every possible detail is how I bring the beauty of a watch into focus. Every line and stroke was appreciation for the craftsmanship of watchmaking. It was a meditation that the image took me on and ended with pure dedication.” - Jeesoo Kim
