New Art: Enter the Circus!

I’m on a clown craze lately! I’m beginning to think I’m designing creepy clowns to overcome my fear of them?  I have to prepare for the upcoming Freakshow season of American Horror Story, after all. That said, there are a few pieces to introduce to the new (organically so) collection! First I’ll begin with Burlesque. …

New Art: Spray!

Guess what?  I drew an ELEPHANT! That should come as no surprise.  The true surprise of Spray! though is that upon finishing the outline, I hated this piece – but, instead of scrapping the piece altogether, I had an instinct to make it work.  I added a squiggle here and there, some contrasting lines and…

New Art: In the Garden

I spent the last couple days working on a new piece titled In the Garden.  After receiving some feedback that people would like to see my work feature more women, I decided to deliver.  In the Garden is a piece I hope translates to represent serenity and beauty.  After sketching the image, I took a break to decide the color…

New Art: Clownin’ Around & Straight Jacket

I woke up this morning with a couple visions in my head for new art involving clowns.  Seems timely provided the media’s coming clown fixation (Lady GaGa’s ARTPOP cover art, the upcoming American Horror Story: Freakshow, “Crazy Steve” from IMPACT Wrestling and rumors about who will play “The Joker” next).  I have a feeling pop culture is…

New Art: Pride

President Barack Obama proclaimed June to be national LGBT Pride Month.  The President’s declaration made me think about a piece of art I created in 2007 titled Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell (right).  Then, I considered majoring in psychology and was wildly fascinated by psychology of gender.  Under the tutelage of Dr. Ritts and Dr. Pierroutsakos, my studies encompassed various topics related to the LGBT…

Happy Mother’s Day! I present: “The Life of Flowers”

If you’re like me, you go to Hallmark and various other places looking for that one Mother’s Day card that represents your mom.  Then, you go in search of the perfect complimentary gift, whether that be a bouquet of flowers, a trinket for her garden, or something else.  Either way, the woman you’re honoring today is your mother – so the…

New Art: The Jungle Beat

Inspired by my most recent textured/layered work SUPERNOVA, I wanted to round out the month of February with one final piece of abstract art: I love creating new art with @crayola scented markers! It's like smelling a box of #FruitLoops the entire time! 🙂 — Bobby James (@TheBobbyjames) February 28, 2014 This piece is titled…
