My name is James Arden and I am the creator and illustrator of JAKART.

I began my career after attending Chesterfield ‘Art School’ to join a local printers as a graphic designer and litho film camera operator in the late sixties. This realised my lifetime passion for graphics and typography.

During this time at the printers I also worked within the music industry photographing many of the groups and individuals of the 70’s music scene and had the privilege to spend many photography sessions with the great ‘John Peel’.

Furthering my passion I joined an advertising agency a few years later and then in 1979 began my solo career by establishing my own studios. This led to not only being involved with graphics and 3D animation but I also became proficient as a ‘food photographer’ for the frozen and chilled food industry.

To date, my passion for graphics has not waned. I am an active website designer and photographer.

I hope you enjoy my passion, if you are interested in purchasing any of my digital art please contact me at: james@jakart.co.uk
