James Hart is an award winning Illustrator, Comic Artist and Avid Doodler who grew up loving comics, cartoons and drawing.
As a child, James was raised on a healthy balanced diet of comics, video games, cartoons, action figures and lego. It wasn’t long before he realized that
you could draw for a living and began his successful illustration journey in 2003. Since then, he has worked on many different projects from toy designs
to book illustrations including work on the animated series of The Day my Butt went Psycho and the thrilling You Choose book
series by George Ivanoff.
James has also lent his talents to fellow presenter, Tim Harris, illustrating his popular book series, Mr Bambuckle’s Remarkables, as
well as illustrating MacPark’s D-Bot Squad series.
2019 sees the release of James’ new books series: Cowboy and Birdbrain which he illustrated and co-created with Adam Wallace. Humorous
and fun, James is popular with the younger students who will leave his sessions wanting more.
