James Braithwaite

Illustration, Typography, Motion, Directing

“James Braithwaite’s illustration is a lethal contagion that affects eyeballs and fingers.
The symptoms of the disease vary, but anyone wincing, giggling, or gagging may be a carrier and must be treated accordingly.”

The artist James Braithwaite, namesake of this affliction, is known for distinctive pen and ink illustration style.

His scribbles were featured in the short animated film I Met the Walrus, which was nominated for an Oscar in 2008, won an Emmy in 2009 and was awarded the Guggenheim/youtube prize in 2010.

Since his animation success, James has worked on an abundance of projects; smearing ink wherever he goes, illustrating a book with Harper Collins, animating a short for Will Forte of SNL, and writing scripts for children’s shows, all injected with James’ cheeky sharp wit.
