Focus On... Jimbob Art!

About a year ago, I picked up a couple porcelain pens and some white plates from Ikea and I tried to draw on them. And write on them. And in general, make them look awesome. You know what? It's a lot harder than you think. Or than I thought. It was actually really hard. So, I have a unique appreciation for the talent, skill, and patience that it takes to create artwork like James of Jimbob Art does. Read on for more information about his process and work!
