JIMMY TANAKA was born in Gifu prefecture. He loved painting since he was a child, and painted oil paintings at the art club in Nagoya Institute of Technology. After that, due to his job, he had the opportunity to be stationed in North Carolina for three years, which was during 9.11. He was inspired by the paintings and words that supported the victims and mourning families at the site in New York, and reconfirmed his love for painting. After returning to Japan, he studied illustration and picture books at Kodansha Famous Schools (KFS) while working. Regardless of the genre, he draws every day in a unique style of freely selecting and drawing painting materials according to the image he wants to draw and wants the viewers to feel happy when they see it as well.

He received the “Design Festa Award”at the 2013 KFS Design Festa Illustration Competition.
