About James

James Ellison is an illustrator and designer.


He lives with a chronic autoimmune disease, Mixed Connective Tissue Disease. He's dedicating the rest of his life to spreading awareness through art and speaking about chronic invisible diseases.

For the last few years James has been pursuing his dream as a freelance illustrator. He studied graphic design at Northern Kentucky University, but is mostly self-taught. In those few years he's gone to comic conventions and craft festivals to showcase his work. He's created posters for a local bar, logos for small businesses, T-shirt designs and more! Creating illustrations are his bread n' butter, but he wants to break into story telling via comic books and graphic novels. 

Often you can find James hiking in his favorite National forest, walking his dog through the city, spending quality time with family or working in his home studio. He lives in Covington, KY with his black lab Daisy and kitten Lancelot.
