Best known for his book se­ries Dino­topia, James spe­cialises in real­is­tic im­ages of scenes that can’t be pho­tographed, from di­nosaurs to an­cient civil­i­sa­tions. 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 at Berke­ley, but chose a ca­reer in art. As well as the Dino­topia se­ries, James has writ­ten in­struc­tion books, Imag­i­na­tive Re­al­ism and Color and Light.
