James received his BFA in Illustration from Uarts in 2004. Since, he has spent most waking hours drawing, painting, and sometimes screen-printing for a variety of clients. His poster work has been shown at The Museum of Design Atlanta, Drexel University, Civilian Art Projects, and in John Foster’s Dirty Fingernails.

James Kaminski is an illustrator from New Jersey who lives and breathes comic books. I know what you’re thinking: “How does one breathe comics”, and rest assured that there is an answer, but it gets a little technical and involves funnels; I won’t get into that. He has worked in both print and digital publications for clients such as NBC, Archie Comics, and PBS. He’s a co-founder of the Philadelphia comics group known as COPOUT Artists and is a proud member of the Philadelphia Cartoonist Society. He loves Star Trek, The Incredible Hulk, Beer, and Pesto.
