James Bolden, age 16, is an 11th grader at North Springs Charter High School and has enjoyed drawing since the very young age of 3 years old. At the age of 9 he sold his first painting, entitled “A Self Portrait”, with a portion of proceeds going to a local children's hospital. In 2011, James completed his first series of greeting cards and shared them with family and friends which sparked a request for selling greeting cards and the beginning of Bolden Studios. In 2015 James wrote, illustrated and published his first version of the ACE Comic Book. Today James has two issues of ACE and novelties available.
