James P. Petty (Chris Hanther)
Founder, Author, and Illustrator
Colorist/Flatter/Back Cover Artist
I am from Ukraine. I started drawing at a very young age and now it is my life! I graduated from a local art school, studying art for 4 years. I studied Fine Arts at KryvyiRih State Pedagogical University and I am currently working as a freelance artist and work with comic book art, sketches, and illustrations. I love rock, heavy metal music, and Netflix serials. In my free time, I play the guitar. My favorite comic book hero is Batman.
I am based in the UK. I have been a freelance multi-media artist for over ten years, and am currently working in comics as a colourist, plus doing graphite portraits and abstract painting. I have been drawing for as long as I can remember; my dad used to give me blank wallpaper when I was little to keep me entertained for hours. I studied at the London Art College and Open College of the Arts. Outside of art, I love history and archaeology, and frequently binge watch period dramas in my free time, as well as learning to sew. My favourite character from comics is between Wonder Woman and Storm from the X-Men.
I'm a Memphis-based comic/cover artist and co-creator of Broot Studios Comics, along with brother/writer, Brad Starnes. I've drawn for as long as I can remember, and have always had a passion for comic book art. Artists such as Michael Turner, David Finch, Mark Bagley, Ryan Stegman, Greg Capullo, and many others, drove me to continue to hone my craft and pursue a career in art. Whether drawing for myself or for others, I'll always have a passion for art, particularly in the comic book style. Currently, I'm working on a number of variant covers and a creator-owned book called "B Movie Saga", which we hope to have out in the near future. Follow me on all social media platforms @skootsart.
