James Hart is an illustrator, comic artist and avid doodler living in the Melbourne area with his wife and kids, and dog called Shasta that is terribly afraid of the wind and butterflies. As a kid, James was raised on a healthy diet of comics, video games, cartoons, action figures and Lego. Since beginning his illustration journey in 2003, he has worked on many different projects from toy designs to book illustration. Recent projects include the animated series of The Day My Butt Went Psycho, The Jackson Payne series by Adam Wallace, and the You Choose books by George Ivanoff. When he’s not drawing his favourite things (aliens, robots and monsters) he’s being a dad and husband, watching movies and cartoons, drinking coffee, listening to music, reading . . . and drinking coffee.
