words in post.
Reading time: ~ min. or so.
I am happy to announce the launch of the new jamesdoe.com website,
where I’ll be presenting my artwork.
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.
In this website all posted artwork will be available through multiple online stores.
- The original artwork will be sold through my store at jamesdoe.bigcartel.com, for securely handling payment transactions. These will be released as collections under a specific theme and possibly using different styles and art tools.
- The same artwork will also be available through the print-on-demand sites society6, redbubble and threadless, in various high-quality prints of different sizes and styles.
