I’m Steve James and I like drawing pictures.
I’m originally from a small village in North Yorkshire and now live on the outskirts of the vibrant city of Leeds. There are a lot of arty folk in my family and I naturally took to doodling from an early age with influences from Beano and Dandy comics to Warner Brothers and Disney cartoons. I have over 10 years of experience working in the creative industry, I’ve been fortunate to design a wide variety of greetings cards for cute, humour and licensed ranges (including Disney: Muppets, Star Wars, Marvel and Toy Story). I’ve also worked on packaging for video game accessories, posters, logos, calendars and animations.
Recent projects include illustrations for iMPRINT Macmillan’s ‘Super Happy Party Bears’ childrens books and illustrations for Leeds City Museums ‘Beavers to Weavers’ exhibition.
I am proudly represented by illustration agency, Advocate Art @advocateart01 for Greeting card design and Children’s book illustration http://www.advocate-art.com/steve-james
