James Dean is the artist of Pete the Cat from the bestselling series. Before James started painting Pete the Cat as a full-time profession in 1999, he wanted to paint cars and trucks. James loves things that go, and he currently drives a 1971 VW bus camper and a 1959 Chevy truck. He worked as an electrical engineer for fifteen years before he decided to quit and try to make a living with his paintings. James lives with his wife, Kimberly, also an artist; five cats (Bob, Frida, FeFe, Audrey, and Abbey); and Little Emma the pug.
