James about himself:
James was born in Columbus, Ohio, Dec. 6, 1955. My family moved to Chicago area in 1970, where I began to think of myself as an artist. Inherited my father's love of surrealism, fantastic art, William Blake, science fiction, etc., to which I added psychedelia, anarchism, sound collage, Eastern philosophy, etc.

In 1991, my girlfriend (now my wife), Andrea Frank and I moved to Seattle for a change of scenery. Here I got started doing book and magazine covers and illustrations, cooking up the Autonomedia Calendar of Jubilee Saints, working with Antero Alli on his quarterly journal of imaginative trouble, Talking Raven, doing a continuing series of CD covers for various projects of Bill Laswell's, and trying to make ends meet by dealing in used books and painting houses. In 1995 I got a computer and started working in Photoshop.
