For the group of books I am currently working on I intend to use createspace. I hope they will do well we will see 6 books so far with a possibility of 10 plus.
Comment by Timothy Schenk on 11/12/2014 at 5:46 PM:
Yes, tricky business demographics. Demographics, genre, and culture.
Comment by Timothy Schenk on 11/11/2014 at 2:54 PM:
I've noticed how are your sales?
Comment by Timothy Schenk on 11/9/2014 at 8:28 PM:
Yes it has been a long time James, how are you? I'm fine and still working on my novels. They just don't seem to end.
Comment by Timothy Schenk on 11/5/2013 at 1:00 AM:
Thanks for the info. That is a really good idea. I wish you loads of success.
Comment by Rama Dixit on 12/28/2012 at 12:42 PM:
Thank you...James !
Comment by Valerie Storey on 2/14/2011 at 4:48 PM:
Thanks for sharing your latest updates and good news, James. Wishing you much success in all you do!
Comment by Timothy Schenk on 2/8/2011 at 10:12 AM:
Good job. Working with a studio is good for the resume. Especially, when creating a firm. The bigger the clients you work with the more smaller clients that will come. Use your connections that you make.
Comment by Timothy Schenk on 11/4/2010 at 9:58 AM:
Wow good one, I actually thought the image was bigger. That's really difficult to achieve.
Comment by Timothy Schenk on 11/2/2010 at 9:32 AM:
Love the vampire girl. I would think maybe a bit of blood on the teeth. Or some spot of blood on the mouth. Nice background it seems to work well. The demon gal is good as well. I could see that demon as maybe a mask for Halloween. Do a mock up with paper mache or sculpty. Hit up a costume manufactu... more
Comment by Romelle Broas Guittap on 11/1/2010 at 8:22 PM:
Very cool Vampiress. Love the blood soaked hair!
Comment by Romelle Broas Guittap on 10/7/2010 at 1:51 PM:
I watched the Interview with the filmmakers of Douche-bag on YouTube. That was really quite funny! Good job. I'll pass it along...
Comment by Timothy Schenk on 10/5/2010 at 6:23 PM:
I'll see what I can do. I only have a Youtube and Twitter page.
Comment by Timothy Schenk on 10/3/2010 at 11:20 PM:
Cool in my spare time I am teaching myself how to use Maya. It's tricky to learn.
Comment by Timothy Schenk on 10/2/2010 at 7:01 PM:
BTW I love the new work in your gallery.
Comment by Timothy Schenk on 10/2/2010 at 6:59 PM:
I am fine. I've been very busy lately working on way too many projects to name.
Comment by Timothy Schenk on 8/11/2010 at 2:20 PM:
You have got to be kidding me. You want to be mass market as an illustrator.
Who told you that?
They are not very good as an art director, agent, or publisher.
Mass market should mean your style has a mass appeal. That should not be used in a negative way or negati... more
Comment by Romelle Broas Guittap on 8/10/2010 at 5:45 PM:
Mass market- usually art with broad appeal...supermarket books...I'm not an expert on this but this is what I think. You may need to find your personal style that people can identify you with.
Comment by Timothy Schenk on 8/9/2010 at 8:21 PM:
Kiki has a home now awesome. Love it all James. Go on send it to some agents especially the ad work. Reps love seeing that you can do ad work.
Comment by Romelle Broas Guittap on 6/14/2010 at 8:53 PM:
You rendered me speechless...LOL!
I wanted to say, "WOW" again. But that would've been redundant.
Comment by Romelle Broas Guittap on 6/10/2010 at 7:12 PM:
Wow! Love the Holy water. What did you use to create it?
Comment by Timothy Schenk on 6/9/2010 at 5:05 PM:
Love it James I know a few art reps that love that kind of work for advertising really big money in advertising illustration.
Comment by Virginia Wright on 5/20/2010 at 10:26 AM:
Nice chatting with you... I tried looking at your gallery pics, and seemed to have trouble getting on to look. Will try again later.
Comment by Timothy Schenk on 5/16/2010 at 11:00 PM:
Sweet ship! Working on an activity are we? Those are always fun. I created one for the YMCA once and it was published locally as a textbook for water safety. Fun stuff awesome client.
Comment by Nata Romeo on 5/16/2010 at 7:51 PM:
James,
lovely illustrations!!!
Comment by Adele Griffin on 5/15/2010 at 8:03 PM:
This was a cool look-through your portfolio!
Comment by Medeia Sharif on 4/18/2010 at 2:05 PM:
Hi, James. You have a great gallery.
Comment by Donald James Parker on 10/15/2009 at 3:10 PM:
Hi James,
How are tricks? There's a cliche that leaves one pondering the derivation. Busy busy busy. Not enough hours in the day to write, research, review, edit, market and work a full time job. I need to clone myself.
Take care!
Don
Comment by Jane Ellen Harris on 9/27/2009 at 2:17 PM:
Well, the second book in the Mighty Little Books series about the adventures of the animals on my farm is due for release and another one is on my desk waiting for me to finish it.. I'm also working on a tween book. My mission at the moment is to find an agent.
Life is good, hectic, but good. :... more
Comment by Jane Ellen Harris on 9/27/2009 at 1:45 PM:
Doing well thank you. I do, however, feel like I've been flying by the seat of my pants since I arrived here. It's all good tho. Your work is great! :)
Comment by Nata Romeo on 9/8/2009 at 1:23 PM:
I like your illustration..it is very colorful and eye catching! keep up the great work ;-)
Comment by Timothy Schenk on 9/6/2009 at 5:15 PM:
Sounds like a few poeple commenting here have some work for you. Also hope you checked that info I gave you. She needs some webpage design. Network writers. even Selp publishing writers could give potential work.
Comment by Debbie Dadey on 9/3/2009 at 8:14 AM:
It's something I've been playing with and your quirky style would be great.
Comment by Debbie Dadey on 9/3/2009 at 8:03 AM:
have you ever done any graphic novels? I'd think they'd be great as easy readers for reluctant readers.
Comment by Debbie Dadey on 9/3/2009 at 7:48 AM:
I do like your fun style! Debbie Dadey
Comment by Nata Romeo on 8/27/2009 at 9:27 AM:
never give up! build your portfolio and I agree with Jeanie get the book "The Children's Writers and Illustrators Market," or sign up online to find publishers who may be interested in your work.
Comment by Nata Romeo on 8/26/2009 at 2:17 PM:
hello James, thank you for stopping by :-) I am doing well thank you.....currently waiting on an illustrating contract....this will be my first....I am so excited.
Comment by Nata Romeo on 8/26/2009 at 2:10 PM:
hello James, I am sorry I didn't understand your comment: howz tricks?
Comment by Jenni Derfoldy on 8/25/2009 at 9:23 PM:
Hi James, thanks for the links and updates for Sultans of Swag. I have been spending a bit of time adding links, in my blog, to other sites and blogs. Will be adding a link to Messer Gallery if that is okay with you. Hope all is well and life is exciting. :-))
Comment by Timothy Schenk on 8/23/2009 at 12:55 PM:
That's a well played step one James. Step two network more.
Comment by Valerie Storey on 8/23/2009 at 12:04 PM:
Thank you for adding me to your friends' list! Hope you're still having some summertime in the UK.
Comment by Timothy Schenk on 8/21/2009 at 7:04 PM:
Things are going fine. I've been Illustrating for a client as well as working on manuscript edits.
Comment by Gibbs Davis on 8/19/2009 at 4:37 PM:
Thanks James. I will look so cool in my new shades and footgear....or not. Forever hopeful!
Comment by Dawn Headley on 8/6/2009 at 2:08 AM:
