James Hough is an illustrator, author, and artist who in his spare time enjoys raising two children with his wife.
He grew up in Broken Arrow, OK, where he drew pictures of baseball cards and Sports Illustrated photos. Before moving to Dallas a few years ago, he and his family lived in Las Vegas, NV, where he took in healthy doses of neon, the Mojave desert, and a spirit of possibility and promise that endures in the American West.
While in Las Vegas he co-founded—with artists David Ryan and Sean Slattery—Ripper Jordan, a collaborative art entity who made objects and pictures that both celebrated and mourned history, robots, love, science, animals, art, and being a person.
He is the illustrator of The Official Sidekick Handbook (Gibbs Smith:2011), the author and illustrator of Jim Public Presents, Volume 1: Starving Artist (Jim Public:2013), and has been known to exhibit artwork in the back of his pickup truck. He sometimes uses the nickname “Jim Public.”
