Digital Artist & Enterpreneur
“Let me tell you, having an all-powerful device like an Omni back then would've been a game-changer."
Jimbo embarked on an artistic journey that began as a childhood interest in drawing. His dedication and love for art, particularly in iPad lettering and Procreate brushes, evolved over time, culminating in a successful career as a digital artist and entrepreneur. The turning point? A college calligraphy class that inspired six intensive years of lettering training. This deep immersion into the world of art paved the way for Shoutbam, a company co-founded by Jimbo that offers an array of digital art services.
From Passion to Profession
His daily routine, a balancing act between content creation and strategic planning, speaks to his commitment and passion. Roughly 70% of his time is spent diving deep into the world of art: recording tutorials, sketching, and bringing client visions to life. The remaining time is invested in fine-tuning tutorials, mapping out social media posts, and handling business errands.
A closer look at his workflow reveals the importance of technology. The iPad, requiring two full recharges daily, stands out as Jimbo's most indispensable tool. In the background, devices like his laptop, phone, and camera play supporting roles, ensuring every artistic vision is realized.
The Power Struggle and the Omni Solution
But being so dependent on tech isn't without its challenges. Jimbo frequently grapples with battery issues, especially given the mobile nature of his work. “It's always been a bit of a struggle to find accessible power sockets wherever I am," he recounts.
Recalling a particular Sunday in Barcelona, Jimbo had envisioned a serene day. With his favorite movie lined up for the afternoon, relaxation was the only thing on his mind. Yet, life had other plans. A power interruption the day before had left his devices lifeless.
While adjusting to this setback, an unexpected email arrived — a chance to design for a Hollywood star. However, with his devices out of power, Jimbo was caught unprepared.
"Let me tell you, having an all-powerful device like an Omni back then would've been a game-changer. Imagine swooping in to save the day, even on a Sunday!" Jimbo admits. It was a defining moment, underscoring the need for a reliable power solution. Today, the Omni Ultimate stands by him, ensuring no such interruptions hinder his creative flow again.
Reflecting on the invaluable role of the Omni, Jimbo highlights its striking features that resonate with his artistic sensibilities. Admiring its sleek yet rugged aesthetic, he lauds the Omni Ultimate for its space-smart design. Despite its compact form, it remains a charging powerhouse, echoing his own passion for blending functionality with style.
Staying Powered Up with Omnicharge
Behind the successful digital artist is a vibrant personal history. "Mmmm… sure! Do you know what's been the biggest influence on shaping who I am, both in my professional and personal life? Believe it or not, it's singing!" Jimbo shares.
Jimbo's tale is not just about his artistic prowess but also a testament to the power of embracing change and seeking continuous growth.
Omnicharge is proud to be a part of Jimbo's dynamic journey, ensuring that he remains charged, connected, and ready to bring his next masterpiece to life. And we are truly “the perfect kind of friend!”
His transformation from an introverted teenager to a confident, outgoing individual stems from his time performing in two bands. This newfound confidence became a stepping stone, enabling him to establish personal and professional connections, deliver workshops and talks, and produce all his educational content.
