Activity


I’ve been on DA for more than ten years. For the last five in particular it’s been an incredibly rich and rewarding source of ideas and inspiration. This wouldn’t have been possible without the fascinating range of people who make this site what it is. Reactions to my work have been as diverse as its audience, and while many have been far too kind I appreciate them all.

I’d love to contribute more and wish I’d been able to correspond with others more freely and regularly. Unfortunately offline developments have made my contributions less frequent, correspondence more restricted, and the happiness I gained from both – and hopefully shared at least some of the time – a source of shame and misery. I don’t wish the same on anyone. The situation calls for understanding, which is all I ask for in return.

I can’t see myself posting anything more in the foreseeable future, barring some dramatic change in attitudes or circumstances. This world still holds a lot of meaning, happiness and hope for me. I’m all too aware some friends might view my silence as an act of betrayal, or have felt themselves betrayed for years, but breaking this silence would be a comparable act of betrayal. I’d have no need to write these words if I’d ever committed it.

I owe everyone who understands my most heartfelt gratitude. Every piece of art and writing I’ve posted on this site now belongs to the public domain. I’d like to think my imaginings will reach audiences I’d never imagined and encourage far greater imaginings.

Whatever the future holds, keep dreaming,

JF

Mr. James for a person to appreciate your gallery his/her mind should be developed within the western culture. But by digging through the whirlpools of the internet for more information, the viewing experience is much more personal, more interesting.

The repeating themes and the wasteland qualities of your art makes me really happy. I see your gallery as a hilarious cartoon of a twisted world with the added bonus of clowns. I love it. The stories behind such abominations are also amazing. Good job!

No worries. I'd been putting your work in my "Humour" collection, but it's so unique and interesting it deserves a folder of its own.
