My name is Keith James. I’m a thirty-something geek residing in Saint Paul, MN. Yes, I said geek, I've embraced who I am and proud of it! I am also an aspiring illustrator and here in DeviantArt you will find a majority of my artwork. Anyone is welcome to take a look through it.

I’ve been involved with art as long as I can remember and knew I’d be working in it since I was in kindergarten. And while it's not yet my profession, I'm working on it!

I attended The Columbus College of Art and Design where I graduated with a BFA majoring in Illustration. I have a love for superhero comic books, children’s books, science fiction/fantasy, animation, and the theatrical arts. So take a look through the galleries, I hope you like what you see!

Current Residence: Saint Paul, MN
Favourite genre of music: Rock and Broadway
Favourite style of art: Illustration: Childrens books and Comic books
Favourite cartoon character: Stich or Yakoo Warner
Personal Quote: Success doesn't taste nearly as sweet without failure as an appitizer.

Well my first attempt at selling some of my art is officially underway.

Tonight I posted 7 musical themed paintings I did back in college. They are small and basic illustrations. The most I asked for any of them for a starting bid was $25, though most I went with $20... and free shipping for all. 

After, I'll attempt to sell some of my superhero art, some of which is a bit more involved, so I'll be asking a touch more.

John also wants me to try selling prints of the picture I painted for him for his birthday. I'm not sure about that yet... maybe.

Finally, I've got a handful of pretty big paintings I'll be finishing with. My Star Wars posters and 3 unused Harry Potter Paintings. I'm not quite sure yet how much I'll be asking for them.

We'll see...

Dear Keith,
This is 'TheArtOfWarHeads' writing to you about what feels like more than a month since your last painting. I know you're not dead, and that you're a busy man, and I hope you show me a sign you've illustrated chapter 2 of 'Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban', or at least an update. I love your artwork and hope you will get your works published.

Best regards,

p.s. I'm a Hufflepuff, by the way.

Hi Nickolas,

Yes, it has been a long time since I posted my last painting. It doesn't just feel like it, it HAS been over a month. I appreciate you taking the time to write me. I won't go into all the messy details of my life, but you summed it up accurately when you said that I'm a busy man and that is exactly the reason I haven't not only posted something new in all this time, but I have done next to no artwork at all in that time as well. I have been trying to get my act together and make time for art, but life keeps getting in the way. Things WILL clear up and I WILL be doing more art - Ch.2 of Azkaban is for sure in that plan - the drawing is already done, it's just a matter of painting it. As well as a whole bunch of other stuff. But it will take a bit more time before it happens.

Your message to me has made me realize just how long it's been since I've been active here, so I'll post a journal entry soon (probably tomorrow/Monday) at least explaining what all has been going on keeping me from art. It's not all bad, some things are very good. Your message has also made me appreciate just how long it's been since I've made some art. While it hasn't worked out for me yet, I'll be doubling my efforts to make something happen. Anyway, thank you again. I truly appreciate all your kind words about my art. Hopefully there will be something for me to share in the nearer future :)

I love your HP pictures! They all are so dynamic!

Thank you so much for the compliments! I had just started Prisoner of Azkaban and needed to take a short break from Potter, but I'm in the process of getting going on them again. There should be some new stuff soon!
