James is a multi-disciplinary artist and illustrator, who plays with motion and color to render harmonizing illustrations of people and nature. With swirling van Gogh inspired skies and magical strokes of color, his art has a mystical, almost cosmic feeling to it. James has created concert posters for Dave Matthews Band, Alabama Shakes, Slightly Stoopid, and Foo Fighters, among others.
“Scar Tissue is one of those songs that I had on repeat as a teenager. There's a lot of nostalgia built into this song for me, I remember the music video playing on MTV and it really capturing that California desert vibe to perfection. With this piece I wanted to pay homage to the music video setting of Joshua Tree, which has become one of my favorite places in Southern California. The main hook of the song "with the birds I share this lonely view" was the driving inspiration for this piece. There is something comforting about the isolation of driving through the desert - you can see the raw beauty of the sunsetting for miles and miles. "I decided on NAMI for my charity because there are a lot of people I have loved that have struggled and still struggle with mental illness and NAMI has been a great foundation for providing education and support on mental illness."
