James Courtney is a highly acclaimed illustrator and pin-up artist. His drawings capture the spirit of larger than life personalities and performers throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond. Following completion of his widely enjoyed Kinky Coloring Book series Courtney leapt head first into the wild and wonderful world of burlesque. There he discovered characters and contributors that inspired him to draw anew. The result of those efforts is Courtney's most visually-rich creation to date The Burlesque Coloring Book.
