February's Guest Contributor:Jim Bradshaw | Doodlers Anonymous

Jim Bradshaw will guest post for DA in the month of February. I could go on and introduce him to you in my own words, but I was lucky enough to discover that he can do it better than I could ever hope to, and in third person.

Jim lives in rural South Jersey. It's not all factories and jammed highways people. He has a wife, 3 kids, 2 cats and a Boston Terrier named Annabelle. During the day, he's an art director. In his real life, he draws, doodles, illustrates, carves, paints, photographs and does any other creative thing he can get his hands on. You will rarely find him without his moleskine. Drawing and doodling strange characters and made up worlds has been one of his favorites things to do since early childhood. It's not only his passion, it's his sanity.

Every word about himself is true. So many artists claim to never be without their sketchbook handy, but I don't even question that fact with Jim. His flickr site and blog are packed with spread upon spread of robots, rocket ships and odd characters. He does it daily, updates often, and fills every space with ink.

Welcome Jim, I am very much looking forward to your postings.

Above is a video for Canadian TV channel, where they commissioned Jim to do art that they then mapped onto the walls, floors and ceilings.
