With a gift for visual storytelling both serious and satirical, James creates cartoon art and striking comic-realism illustrations for a range of clients. His process begins with sketches and a pile of photo references, roughing out the image in Photoshop and inking in Illustrator. James has created art for numerous comedic podcasts, including Christian O’Connell’s ‘Stuff of Legends’ and worked extensively with Wil Anderson – his work frequently adorns the comedian’s ‘The Dollop’ podcast, and James believes he may now in fact hold the world record for drawing Wil Andersons.

His work has also appeared in projects for Asahi, Sure T-shirts, ABC podcast ‘Finding Drago’ and The United States of Absurdity, a book about bizarre American history by Dave Anthony and Gareth Reynolds. He volunteers his skill for organisations such as Beyond Blue and climate action group Plan It Change 10.

As a kid, I loved to draw…
Pumpkins! The sense of accomplishment once I put that green line on the orange circle? You wouldn't believe it. I'm still chasing that feeling.
I can’t stop listening to…
Run The Jewels, Phoebe Bridgers, Little Simz, The Northern Boys and a WHOLE bunch of podcasts.
I love collaborating with…
Comedians and artists of all kinds and ad agencies with HUGE budgets ;)
My solution to creative block is…
Take my dog for a walk or go do the toilet.
A creative area I’d like to explore more is…
Augmented Reality. I find it intriguing that you can look at the world through your phone or other device and discover something unexpected. It's almost like a hidden layer behind reality that we can access, which is very cool.
I do my best work when…
I get a nice big chunk of time in which to do it.
