About

“Hello! My name is James Monterosso and I am a 2D animator and illustrator based in Boston. With a passion for bringing characters to life through animation and creating colorful and engaging illustrations, I have honed my skills through years of practice and study. I specialize in cartoon character animation and illustration. I enjoy collaborating with clients to bring their vision to life.

When I’m not animating or illustrating, I enjoy playing video games, chilling with my cat Olivo and enjoying a good movie at the theater. Thank you for visiting my website and I look forward to working with you!”
