Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, James began making art at a young age. From his junk collector father to his artist uncle, James' family encouraged his art making in a variety of ways which James charmingly describes in Uncle Andy's. Written and illustrated by James, this children's book recounts one of the many “faabbbulous” trips the Warhola family took to visit their famous relative, Andy Warhol. Set in 1962, this book gives the reader an insider's view of Andy Warhol from the perspective of a young nephew.
As an adult James pursued a career as an illustrator. A prolific artist over the course of his career, James painted over 400 covers of science fiction and fantasy books. He also worked for MAD Magazine illustrating covers and interiors.
Since 1987, James has illustrated almost two dozen children's books. His latest book which he also wrote tells the tale of Andy Warhol's cats. Appropriately named Uncle Andy's Cats, this book gives us a unique view of James' eccentric uncle.
James will deliver the Keynote Address on Sunday morning and will conduct workshops.
