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.
Interests
So I have 2 things. The second thing is a question, after I explain the first. 

First. I have promised multiple times that I haven't left this planet and am trying to get back on track with producing some art more frequently... especially getting back to my Harry Potter art. And I am still working on that. Thank you to those who've told me they understand and have encouraged me just to get to it when I can - but even on just a personal level, I'm frustrated I haven't figured out a good pattern to get more done. One of the biggest contributors to the problem was my job. I used to do a massive part of my art during my lunch breaks doing all the sketching and preliminary drawing that goes into my work there, then I could work on just the final pieces at home. But things got so consistently busy, I all but gave up on even taking any lunch breaks. Well, things have changed. Friday was my last day at that job and I start a new one on Monday! I don't know that it will be better, but I highly suspect that it will. It will take a little time at first, because I'll need to get trained in before I'll find what my work pattern will be like. Also, much of my non-work hour free time is about to be taken up because my hubby has been hired to direct another production of "The Wizard of Oz" so we'll be going to rehearsals. But still... things are about to get a whole lot better :)

Second. In the mean time, I was thinking about re-posting some of my old stuff, just slightly better versions of it. I'd just like to take a poll, for those who still remember me (it's been a while since I've posted anything new) and want to answer - would it seem like a "cheap" ploy to re-post old work, or would you enjoy seeing it a little bigger without the Deviant watermark on it, only my website address would be there? And if you do like the idea, would you be comfortable if I got rid of the old versions? In the end, I'll do what I decide is best, but opinions do help me make up my mind sometimes.
