It all started with a Sharpie pen and one hell of an attitude!
James Dalman launched his creative career in 1986 when he started customizing Chuck Taylor All-Stars and Levi's 501s with Sharpie pens and an airbrush. His artwork was psychedelic and off the wall, gaining popularity among the alternative street crowd.
James would go on to create designs and graphics for almost everything imaginable. He learned screen printing, embroidery, sign painting, graphic design, vinyl graphics and a broad range of skills to make him one of the most versatile artists in the marketplace.
James Dalman is now the founder and CEO of Happy Joe, a military lifestyle brand dedicated to supporting the well being of our nation's military veterans and service members. He's honored to have served in the U.S. Army Reserves and Oklahoma National Guard.

The more someone says it's not possible, the more I will fight to prove them wrong. People have told me I would never succeed or that I was stupid for following my dreams.
Yet I've created designs for some of the best brands on the planet. I've launched multiple successful businesses. I've coached hundreds of freelancers and spoke in front of thousands of people.
My critics can suck it. #BOOM

I couldn’t be more thrilled with what James Dalman designed for my website. He created ridiculously good details that I still admire even months later. Perhaps more importantly, he listened to what I didn’t want and avoided it.
