SparkleYT Animator Artist USFlag FemaleIcon 2018 YouTuber Verified

Julia (born: May 14, 2005 (2005-05-14) [age 15]), better known online as Julie of the Arts, makes animated videos for YouTube. She had previously referred to her videos as "several-hundred-pictures-edited-together-to-corresponding-audio-in-a-proceeding-fashion-videos" as she did not used to use animation software. However, she starting calling her videos "animated" upon switching to Adobe Animate CC in February 2020.


Julie of the Arts used Adobe Illustrator Draw and Filmora when she started her YouTube Career. However, in February 2020, she switched to Adobe Animate and uploaded her first video using Animate on Feb 12, 2020. Julie of the Arts now uses Adobe Animate CC 2020 and Filmora 9 to make her videos.

Livestreams and monetization

She started live streaming more to work towards monetization, and it couldn't have gone better for her. Not only were her streams frequent and long, but also entertaining enough to keep people there for hours, effectively raking in watch hours.

However in recent days she hasn't "felt like streaming".

Despite surpassing the watch time requirement for YouTube monetization, YouTube denied Julie's monetization because too much of her watch time came from streams. Because of this, Julie of the Arts is not monetized on YouTube.


Julie of the Arts attended VidCon 2019 and made a 30-minute video that raked in tons of watch hours and pushed her over the edge for being eligible for monetization, but that was a while ago and Julie of the Arts still hasn't heard back from YouTube. She initially planned on attending VidCon U.S. 2020, but due to its cancelation, she has no plans to return anytime in the future.

Speed art

Alongside her animations, Julie of the Arts will occasionally make a time-lapse drawing video and/or speed art. She normally does this as a gift to a YouTuber such as Haminations, Infamous Swoosh, or BrodyAnimates on their birthday, but she has recently made a speed art video where she drew fans because she hadn't uploaded for quite a while.


  • She is allergic to dairy, so one of her friends called her a vegan as a joke and it spread.
    • Despite her mention of her gluten allergy in her "Allergies" video, Julie actually CAN eat gluten, but in small amounts and must take a pill with it. For some unknown reason, this further convinces people that Julie is a vegan, despite her not being one.
  • Julie's favorite anime is "Erased". In March of 2020, she made a video sharing why she enjoys it so much.
  • Julie dyed a small strip of her hair blonde for VidCon 2019, but in the summer on 2020, she decided to dye a lot more of it blonde, and now has her character's iconic swoop in real life as well.
  • She has a younger sister.
