Who is j.m?
Hi everyone! I’m Jamie, a 23-year-old living in the Eastern Suburbs of Melbourne, Australia. I am the person behind the drawings, a one man team if you will with some amazing supporters helping out where they can.
Id first like to say a big thank you for visiting the website even if its just to check out the drawings, it means a lot!
I started DogeJM while studying a course that i inevitably dropped out of. At the time drawing was a great creative release and incredibly enjoyable as i practised in my in my most favourite subject, Animals (Dogs in particular but never limited to). I started a small Instagram page as doge_jm, asked some friends to send me photos of their dogs and that’s really where it all started.
With this came some exciting growth on social media and i discovered how much a custom drawing of a pet really mean’t to people, especially of those beloved fur babies who had passed.
I started drawing using a very old Wacom Bamboo Tablet and a super old version of Photoshop before taking the jump and purchasing an Ipad Pro and Apple pencil. I have not looked back since!
DogeJM is essentially a slang word for dog, inspired by a meme you might have heard of and my initials (pronounced Doe Je).
As you might have guess i have very big soft spot for dogs, animals in general but dogs in particular. This just means that every pet i get to draw is such a pleasure and i do my very best to capture even the tiny details that really makes your pet who they are.
This website has been the next big leap for DogeJM but there is always more to come as I’m always working towards bigger and better things.
While growing this little business I juggle 2 jobs to keep everything moving while also studying Motion Graphics in the city. I do this all to be able to bring new things to the table all of which you will have to wait and see…
