For each piece of artwork that I work on, I aim to create a crystallized form of artistic exploration. These are mementos of ideas that momentarily possess me. Some pieces are full illustrations, while others are quick sketches that I usually do while having my morning cup of coffee.
I consider each of my illustrations as an exploration, which I execute under my artistic alias “JamesDoe” - a pseudo-name or secret identity that I came up with more than a decade ago - forged due to my long-term addiction to unhealthy doses of comic books, cartoons, anime and sci-fi literature.
My work and processes are foremost inspired by comic books and their creators. My tools of choice are Indian ink, brushes, fountain pens and watercolours, while sometimes I experiment with digital colouring on scanned black and white artwork.
