Ryan James

Ryan James was born in 1988 on the Caribbean island of Trinidad. In 2008 he enrolled at SCAD, The University for Creative Careers, (formally known as the Savannah College of Art and Design) in Savannah, Georgia, USA and he graduated cum laude with a Bachelor's Degree in Illustration in 2012.

During his time in college he showed interest in many different areas of art where his skills as an illustrator could be applied. Under the publishing company Paria Publishing in Trinidad, he has illustrated two storybooks by late Trinidadian children’s book author Andy Campbell in 2009 and 2010. He has shown interest in concept art, visual development and storyboarding for movies and video games.

As an artist he prefers the route of the narrative and storytelling over conceptual abstract image making, and in 2012 self-published his first book that was entirely written and illustrated by himself entitled: “The Tale of the Forest Guardians"
