James Ward established Jimbobart in 2009. His illustrations, from his first ever plate design, the superhero ‘Sandwich Defender’, to a tennis-playing crocodile drawn in pen and ink for Lacosté – are a little eccentric and a lot of reflecting human traits.
His products can also be found in lovely stockists round the world, including Liberty, London.
It’s not all about keeping animals in pants. James is regularly commissioned to illustrate original designs and artwork. Recent commercial clients include UNIQLO, White Stuff, Hyundai department stores, Harper Collins, Folded Wing, Channel 4 and Amnesty International.
His illustrations have been featured widely in the press and in magazines, including the Guardian, The Sunday Times, The Telegraph, Country Living and the Portland Mercury.
