Short biography
(2) Jim Blanchard was born in Houston, Texas in 1965, and spent his formative years in Alaska, Ohio, California, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Norway. He graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts in 1987. Since moving to Washington State in 1988, he has taken on a wide range of artistic roles, including: cover artist for books & CDs, spot illustrator for magazines, technical illustrator, comic book artist, silkscreen poster artist, logo designer & art director for Fantagraphics Books, and inker for Peter Bagge’s much-lauded Hate comic series. He has also enjoyed success as a gallery artist with his large-scale, graphic art paintings.

Jim’s graphic influences extend from “low brow” sources (mug shots, vintage record covers, “pulp” illustrations, movie posters, rock posters, underground comix) to “high brow” painters and print artists throughout history.

Jim currently resides in lovely Maple Valley, Washington, with his wife and 2 Smooth Fox Terriers
