Jim Campbell was first attracted to lettering by the work of Dave Gibbons, whose name appeared twice in the Dan Dare credit box in 2000AD Prog 104[1].

Campbell lettered on and off as a hobby until he realised he was getting paid as much for his lettering as for his day job, around his 40th birthday[2].

Campbell is inspired by the artist-drawn sound effects of Dave Gibbons, Alan Davis and Arthur Ranson. He also admires the work of Steve Potter and Tom Frame[2].
