  • Well done ! The best is the last one 🙂

  • It’s been cool to see his work evolve over the years. I’m always drawn to his more loose immediate fantastical work, as opposed to the more developed and polished pieces. The first one is incredible!

  • Ross

    Definitely the first, perfect amount of color and detail. Still the whole set is fantastic.

  • love the tecnic!

  • Jean-Luc Gallic

    I have to say I used to be a really big fan of James’ stuff after i got kindling for my birthday, and now his style has progressed into these beautiful pieces I still love his work, thanks jeff for posting

  • this guy’s great.

    found some lovely work on his site.

    booooooom delivering as always.
