What is it about Spongebob that makes him so childlike? Or gives Batman his ominous silhouette? Students will learn the thinking behind cartoondom's most iconic characters and create future stars of their own in this eight week course.

James has been cartooning since the first grade, where he would draw knock-off Looney Tunes comics for his friends. A little more recently he created the syndicated comic strip Ellington Way for United Media and worked on the animated series Little Bill for Nickelodeon. Currently, he works as a graphic designer, draws the pet webcomic Sodapop, and illustrates children’s books. (He’s also learning to play the mandolin, but that’s a tale for another bio.)

James’s work can be seen at and Go take a look!
