Brisbane-based artist James Brouwer has been providing concept design and illustration for animation, games, comics and toys for over a decade. During this time, he’s worked for companies including The Disney Channel, Sega, THQ and Hasbro.

As a comics artist, James has worked for DC Comics, and with writer Tom Taylor on the critically acclaimed graphic novel series The Deep for Gestalt Comics. This series dives into the adventures of a multi-ethnic family of underwater explorers (and a trained fish). Both volumes of The Deep (Here Be Dragons and The Vanishing Island) have won the award for Best Illustrated Book/Graphic Novel at the Aurealis Awards.

James is currently working as Art Director on The Deep animated series in production at DHX, the studio responsible for Slugterra, Max Steel and Storm Hawks, as well as illustrating the next two graphic novels in the series.
