My name is James Donahue. I am a painter, illustrator and cartoonist in no particular order. I graduated from the School of Visual Arts with a BFA in Illustration. I had a short lived run as an illustrator before losing my passion for art and illustration. While ideas always presented themselves I did not have the will to follow through until recently. When I stepped back, assessed things and realized art was one of the few things that made me happy and fulfilled. This blog is about my journey back to the arts. My thoughts, desires and struggles. I hope you join me and share in your own art experiences.
