Portraits

50


50 per unit - Virtual OK

I can make any portrait of any person place or thing from a photograph for you. Since I would like to work mainly from photographs that is basically all I would need from you is to send that over to get started. I have worked with many sitters as well, in person, to create large and small scale portraiture and have done fine art and illustration for over 15years with a focus on more whimsical, and dark themes. I like to work in ink, but would have no issue creating this portrait for you in whatever media would best suit you.

For this portrait offer, it would be ink @ 5" x 8" on creme 80lb paper.

For any related ideas, I would be willing to use media supplied by the client to create this as well.

For any questions you may have feel free to pose them to me on here, and I look forward to hearing from you all.

Training & Qualifications


I have a BFA in fine art from Towson University, and have been a professional illustrator and graphic designer for over 5 years. My history in drawing and painting spans my entire life, and I have been trained in drawing, printmaking, oil painting, watercolor, illustration, design, theory, and art history.

On top of my own education I have also been an art assistance in an elementary school setting @ Sherman Elementary school in San Francisco, and also taught English in Changsha China. I believe this experience in teaching, and my personal education in Fine art will pair nicely to develop your talents as well.

Thanks for reading through all this and feel free to check out my work online @

About Jonathan James

I'm a 33 year old wanderer in Tampa at the moment doing art and re transitioning back into the groove here. I like making extravagant foods, reading real live books and catching pocket monsters. I... have a BFA in Fine Art and Dsign from Towson University and also went to school at the Academy of Art in SF, CA. I have lived in Baltimore, San Francisco, Changhsa China, and Tampa Florida. Presently I am a freelance Illustrator and designer mainly sourcing clients through upwork, and have been pursuing volunteering opportunities where i can. My side projects I have going are two childrens books titled "Humans are Complicated," and "The Dark Balloon" You can see my work online @ www.instagram.com/jonathanmjames and @ www.behance.net/harahara My partner is a USF grad student here, and we like to find new parks and art things around town. Let me know if there is something I absolutely should see while here in Florida!show more
