James spe­cialises in paint­ing re­al­is­tic im­ages of scenes that can’t be pho­tographed, from di­nosaurs to an­cient civil­i­sa­tions. He’s also a plein air painter and sketcher, be­liev­ing that mak­ing stud­ies from ob­ser­va­tion fu­els his imag­i­na­tion. James taught him­self to draw by read­ing books about Nor­man Rock­well and Howard Pyle. He re­ceived a de­gree in an­thro­pol­ogy at the Univer­sity of Cal­i­for­nia, but chose a ca­reer in art. James has writ­ten the in­struc­tion books Imag­i­na­tive Re­al­ism and Color and Light.
