Hey there! I'm James, I'm an illustrator, hand lettering artist and digital designer from Sydney, Australia. 

I've worked as a freelance illustrator, a digital product designer, and apparel designer, but I've found what gets me the most excited is showing others how to create and make. 

I'll be creating and adding lessons on everything illustration, lettering, and design, both traditional and digital.

Let's have some fun!
