Training


After taking a foundation course in art and design, James got a first in Illustration at the University of Lincoln. He became a graphic designer, taking illustration commissions on the side, and then took the plunge to become a full-time illustrator in 2011.

Approach


James starts his work in pencil, applying his colours digitally. He likes to maintain a handmade feel to his illustrations, and adds textures to what he’s drawn for further richness. His Mac helps him work to tight deadlines, while maintaining a high level of detail in each piece. His mural projects, meanwhile, are undertaken using paint pens and emulsion.

Style


Patterns and detail are important elements in James’s style. His line work has a slightly naïve feel to it and, working digitally, he adds depth to images by including extra elements, even if they’re small and subtle.

His collection of books about fossils, birds and plants feeds his interest in patterns and textures.
