Art definitely has no limits. For James Cook, his pieces are not only stunning but truly timeless. The artist uses a manual typewriter, an all-time office machine from the bygone era, something that we thought were only vintage decor pieces now. The 23-year-old, student of architecture, loves details and draws impeccable portraits and drawings.

Cook became interested in typewriters when he heard about a man called Paul Smith, who suffered from cerebral palsy. Unable to hold a brush or a pen, he used to draw using a typewriter.
The artist bought his first typewriter from an elderly couple selling antiques. Today, James has a thriving collection of around 20 typewriters that he uses to create his paintings.

James’ art is one of a kind and can take a lot of time to finish. His largest drawing to date is roughly 4 feet by 3 feet and, unofficially, is probably the largest typewriter drawing ever done. It took three rolls of paper, around 100,000 letters, numbers, and punctuation marks.
