Over the past nine years, James Cook has created over 300 typewritten drawings using nearly 60 typewriters. Most of the typewriters were donated by his fans. James Cook creates artwork in various sizes, from postcard-sized to large rolls of paper. He constructs bigger drawings in sections, allowing for more significant creations than traditional paper-feed. The drawings often contain concealed messages or words related to the project’s backstory.
Cook’s work has garnered attention from A-list celebrities and public figures. He sent a portrait to fellow typewriter enthusiast Tom Hanks and was surprised to receive a letter from him in return. He was commissioned to draw a portrait of the late H.M Queen Elizabeth II for a former royal household member, in exchange for a typewriter previously used by the Royal Clerk at Buckingham Palace.
Cook has also provided typing services for various celebrities, including Kelly Clarkson and cast members from Doctor Who, as well as news presenters such as Ben Shephard, Kate Garraway, Holly Willoughby, and Philip Schofield for their TV appearances.
