As a heavy-metal-teen in the early nineties, Jimbob absorbed comic books, gig posters and rock album art. While falling in love with art nouveau master Alphonse Mucha and beginning to play in his first and long-running band, Taint (latterly playing in his second band Hark.)
Isaac’s earlier steps in graphic design and vector based illustration have given way to full time drawing, and since 2010 he has committed himself to the mighty pen. Jimbob has broadened his rendering methods into the analogue domain, with unique pen and ink pieces while utilizing digital colouring.
As well as numerous commissions from clients and bands such as Clutch, High on Fire, Mastodon, Melvins, Neurosis, Orange Goblin, Red Fang, The Sword, Converge, Sweden Rock, Sonishphere and Hellfest Jimbob has exhibited in group shows at Bristol (UK)’s Weapon Of Choice gallery gallery.
Jimbob also contributed to the U.S show Life And Death In Black And white, along side Godmachine, Jacob Bannon, Away, Richey Beckett, Randy Ortiz, Arik Roper and Justin Bartlett amongst others.
In May 2018, JB hosted his first solo exhibition ‘To Live Is To Die’ at The Flood Gallery in Greenwich, London. The preview was a success with many in attendance, and with originals and prints both displayed and sold.
Jimbob has finally begun his journey into tattooing, after 23yrs of slowly getting tattooed and immersing himself in tattoo culture. Migrating his line and dot work style, from the paper to skin has been a huge pathway for Isaac to take. You can find him at Broadside in Swansea, UK.
