My Bio
James Corck - James Corck the Gryphon (transparent

Hello, this is Victor Cañizares Coleman, but online I am known as James Corck.


I'm a graphic designer, illustrator, artist, and every day I do my best to improve my artistic skills, trying out new things, drawing for others and myself. You may wonder "Why an artist? Why don't you find a job that pays better and is safer?". Well, I read once that sane people become lawyers, doctors, or something other that pays well and has a secured position. If you are insane you make movies, write books, and do pictures. I guess I am insane then. Besides, I tried that whole "better job that pays well" thing for three years, and those were the most miserable years of my life. I only feel good doing this, I genuinely do. Doing otherwise would be to betray what makes me being me.


I come from a family of artists. My great grandfather was an artist. My grandfather was an artist. My mother was an artist. And I want to continue that lineage.


I'm the creator of Ask Movie Slate, an ask blog on Tumblr where I review movies with my character, a cute unicorn called Movie Slate. I also illustrate the comic series "Old Appleoosa: Tales from Eq-Westria" written by Fernindt, "I Will Never Leave You" and "Sanguine Kindness" written by Rated-R-Ponystar, and the comic strip series "Fur With Cream" (currently on hiatus).


I've worked for "BronyScot" doing graphic design for their convention, and came up with those "Best Pony Logo" edits a few years ago. I am also working with Silver Quill on his review show "After the Fact" as a title card illustrator.


I hope you all like what you see in my gallery, and I encourage you all to let me know what you think of my artwork in the comments.


Thank you so much for dropping by and I hope you all have a wonderful time.

Hello there everyone. I write this as the last days of 2020 are coming to an end, something that for many won't mean much since most of the problems this year will follow us onto the next. However lets not take for granted the solace many of us will find on this change. Of course we know that 2021 won't mean an auto-reset on all the bad things of 2020, but it will be an auto-reset on our minds. We can now look at the next 365 days and with this new perspective hope that we can make something good out of them. 2020 felt like getting our asses kicked by that one boss in Dark Souls over and over again. 2021 will hopefully be us facing that same boss but being more wise about it, and being able to adapt to the fight better and faster. We made it through a very difficult year. We've got this. So yeah this project! This idea started in Mach 1st, where I'd draw 1 picture every week, without any plans or being commissioned for it. Just a drawing for myself, because I wanted to indulge in

Hello there guys, It's been a while since I last made a journal entry, as I usually leave my ramblings to picture descriptions and replies in the comments. Here's a couple of things I'd like to cover regarding the current state of affairs over here. "THE PERSONAL PROJECTS" PROJECT. I have to say, if something good is to come out of 2020 that isn't part of the dumpster fire, it will definitely be this project. I thought I'd be giving it up after two or three weeks, after my idea bucket was emptied and nothing else was left in it. I expected my excess of pony artwork might've damaged my ability to draw anything other than horses. I was wrong on both accounts and man am I happy for that. This project has proven to be a good idea, and I've managed to keep a relatively regular schedule of updates, a good idea flow, and a general alright level of quality (I hope to be improving further as things continue). Eventually this project will morph into "Lets just do a picture for myself every
