James provides illustration for graphic novels, childrens books, posters, advertising and film, with a focus on storytelling through sequential art.

In 2016 he illustrated An Adventure In Statistics: The Reality Enigma, written by Andy Field. Published by SAGE Publications, the book combined statistics learning with a science fiction graphic novel, and was shortlisted for the British Book Design and Production Awards 2016.

" In James I found not just an exceptionally talented artist, but someone who would put as much care into the book as I did, it felt like he was passionately invested in the project. I was constantly impressed with James’ ability to take my written descriptions, stick drawings, and schematics and transform the fictional world in my head into stunning visuals packed with his own ingenious ideas. The graphic novel element of the book benefitted immeasurably from James' ideas about how to frame a scene and what perspective to take to maximise the dramatic impact of the story. His talent and experience in visual storytelling was evident from the beginning"
