Pencil Art: Theo Pencil draws Sultan of Brunei
Ghanaian celebrated hyper-realistic Pencil Artist, Theo Pencil, who takes deep inspiration from the Sultan of Brunei, wishes to meet him.
Known for hyper-realistic pencil drawings, Theo Pencil has completed an amazing drawing of the Sultan of Brunei – which is already going viral on social media.
It is Theo’s wildest wish to meet the Sultan of Brunei, do an official presentation, hob-nob with him, and to have his blessings. “I take a lot of inspiration from the Sultan of Brunei. I never go to You Tube without watching something on him. That is how come he sunk into my sub-conscious mind. He inspires me to think out of the box. I will be the happiest to meet him” Theo Pencil said.
The eldest son of Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddien III and Raja Isteri (Queen) Pengiran Anak Damit, he succeeded to the throne as the Sultan of Brunei, following the abdication of his father on 5 October 1967.
The Sultan has been ranked among the wealthiest individuals in the world; Forbes estimated the Sultan’s total peak net worth at US$20 billion in 2008. Following the death of Thai King Bhumibol Adulyadej in 2016, the Sultan is the wealthiest monarch in the world.
On 5 October 2017, The Sultan celebrated his Golden Jubilee to mark the 50th year of his reign on the Throne.
Theo Pencil also filmed the drawing stages of the drawing and wishes to telecast it to the Sultan of Brunei – plus draw another picture that is very dear to the heart of Sultan of Brunei, should the King ask him to.
Below is the final work of the Sultan of Brunei. Yes – what you are seeing is raw Pencil work. Very detailed! Hyper-Realism!
