Portrait photography: Mo Tetlow
A freelance graphic designer and artworker, Jim entered his profession with a fine artist's heart, having been guided towards graphic design during his foundation course at art college in the early 1990s. This has made him especially passionate about that wonderful hybrid zone where the boundaries dissolve, where graphics, photography and fine art meet and collide into new hybrid art forms. Creativity has always been his prime motivation since the 1980s as a child when he would frequently be found doodling, drawing and painting; then from late 1990 he has been on a musical voyage, continually recording both solo and collaborative projects. Naturally these interests came together and he has used his skills to create artwork for hundreds of albums, for freelance commissions as well as his own projects.
