Pieces of his art saw millions of views on Reddit and imgur, with sales through his etsy shop "Tim Jeffs Art". He was featured in VEUX magazine's October 2013 issue 14 volume 2, "Masks & Monsters" in an article titled "Devil in the Details". His work consists of mostly endangered species, and therefore he has joined up with several conservation groups to promote animal protection and awareness. He continues to add new works to his animal collection and offer prints of the pieces for sale to the public.
