More art and t-shirts for sale at Redbubble… on my website and I have a Facebook art page here:

I am an experienced Photoshop user and I also dabble in Painter and Illustrator and I poke about with the odd bit of Web Design occasionally.
Commisions are most welcome, whatever the subject matter, logo's, cartoon work, book covers, one off custom work. You decide!

At school, I decided that a career in the creative world was the path for me. I always enjoyed drawing and painting as a child and I seemed to do well in creative subjects. So in 1990, at Thanet College in Kent, I was lucky enough to be able to take three A-Levels: Graphic Design, Fine Art and Textile & Surface Design. While there I was taught by Mike Trim who worked on various Gerry Anderson projects and painted Jeff Wayne's War of the Worlds album cover, and Russ Nicholson who spent his time illustrating the Fighting Fantasy role-play books and contributing to White Dwarf magazine.Those two in particular had a massive influence on me and I have been forever grateful ever since. From there I did a Foundation Course at kent Institute of Art & Design (KIAD) Canterbury, which lead onto Northbrook College, East Sussex, in 1994,to take an HND in Graphic Design & Illustration and from there into the big wide world!

Clients include:
Aon Insurance, Caravan Magazine, Paramount Care Homes Ltd, AccentUK Comics, Underfire Comics, Quellheart Publishing, Zel Pubs, and A La Mode Entertainment to name a few. And of course many, many private comissions for portraits, caricatures, custom leather jacket paintings, tattoo designs, nursery murals and one off design jobs for logo designs incuding stationary and headed paper, wedding invitations and brochures and what not.

Commercially: Drew Struzan, Richard Amsel and Bob Peak (movie poster artists), Roger Dean, Brian Froud, Dave McKean, Cam Kennedy, Mike McMahon, J. Scott Campbell, Adam Hughes and Jim Fitzpatrick to name but a few.
Historically: Alphonse Mucha, Gustav Klimt, Arthur Rackham, Norman Rockwell... the list goes on.

Current Residence: East Sussex. UK
Favourite genre of music: Progressive and Power Metal
Favourite style of art: I'm more of a 2D fan.
Operating System: Mac OS X 10.4.blah blah blah.
MP3 player of choice: iPod Shuffle
Shell of choice: Armour piercing
Wallpaper of choice: I hate wallpaper
Skin of choice: What an odd question!
Favourite cartoon character: Aeon Flux
Personal Quote: Whose Scruffy Lookin' ?

Its nice to see Russ was decent to you at Thanet College.. He glibly told me that I would never make money drawing monsters and that I should quit whilst I was ahead..

Turns out he was wrong lol, made a nice career for myself creating monsters for people lol..

Kool illustrations mate, big respect 8-)

Howz it going James. If you recall, quite a few months ago I bought a few of your MotoGP posters. Unfortunately in my bloody relocation I've misplaced all the prints!

Do you still have the large Rossi, Stoner & Bayliss posters? I can't remember what price u offered me because we kept it off ebay. I'm gonna post your website link on my forum & see if others want to do a group buy too.

Thank you so much James for adding "First Breath from Coma" to your collection, that really means a lot! I hope this finds you well. Your gallery is amazing!

It's a deserved fave Ian. Your technique really reminds me of the motogp art prints of Colin Carter... which is a very good thing!!!

Thank you kindly James, I really appreciate that! You'll have to forgive me, I don't know Collin Carter, though I will look him up now. I would love to break into the MotoGP art market, and have been trying, but have had no success as of yet. It seems very closed, but I'd like to find a niche there as it might help support my career.

I'm having similar problems, and although I sell a stack of prints on eBay of my Superbike and MotoGP art. Getting into somewhere like GrandPrix Legends for example, to sell your work is darn near impossible.
I have considered setting up my own dedicated moto art website and inviting other like minded people to join in on the venture... The problem is the advertising side of things, actually getting people to come by your shop!
Keep plugging away, you'll get there :)
All the Best,

Hi there, I see that you are a sussex deviant, I thought that I would invite you to become a member of a brand spanking new group called #Sussexdeviants. The idea of the group is to bring together a lot of people from the sussex area, and have a bunch of fun, we are accepting members right now, so come and join us, and tell all your local friends!
