IFX Reviews Portrait Video

The new issue of ImagineFX takes a look at the new Portraits in the Wild video:

"James' latest video shows him doing the groundwork that supports his successful attempts to represent the breadth of humanity in his illustrations."

"The task this time," they say, "is to get figures on to paper while the 'models' get on with whatever they're doing: queueing for food at a country fair, working in a historical re-enactment village, or performing in a choir. There's also a more formal modelling session with a model who, James says, 'We knew wouldn't stay still.'" 

IFX says that my "In The Wild" videos are "creative beacons, informing the way you approach your craft and encouraging you to use the world around you to enrich your work. There's a great deal of enjoyment to be had from the characters that you meet along the way; and the Sacred Harp choir performance, which you'll hear fragments of as James paints, is sensational."
