About me

Hi I'm James, a Cornwall-based commercial illustrator and yes, you guessed it, I love drawing heads.

I love laying down marks to build something from nothing. Creating the illusion of form from a few simple strokes. Watching a head begin to watch me back (is that creepy

If you have a head (the weirder the better) that is aching to be drawn, get in touch.
