About James

Hi I am James, I am a "tradigital" artist based near Glasgow.
I love helping others to achieve their 3D goals and to inspire them on their own creative journeys.

I graduated in Interior Design (applied design) from Edinburgh College of Art in 1999 and since then I worked in the 3D graphics industry making visualisations for architects, engineers, and entertainment companies. I still do freelance work in these sectors today. As well as that I produce my own products and art, I have been featured in two two page articles about me in the international 3D World magazine and I have had two short animated films featured in Channel 4 film festivals.

Over the past few years, I have been working at FabLabs. I did art residencies in Fabrication Labs in Montreal, London and Iceland and recently finished a contract working at a FabLab in North Devon. This has made me an expert with 3D printing, Lasercutting and Vinyl Cutting.

I advocate traditional drawing and I have been making a #draweveryday for the last few years on Instagram and Twitter.

In my spare time, I love world travel, swimming and films. I took up inline skating half a year ago and love this new sport too :)

    Can you tell us about your first experience using a computer?

    My first experience using a computer. I was about 8, my parents bought me and my sister a Spectrum 128. I didn't get into using art with a computer until about 1990, I was about 13. I had an Atari ST then :) One of the magazines at the time had a free cover disc with art/designs applications on it. I remember there was an animation one on it where you could draw 2D shapes and make them move.

    As a tradigital artist/designer, I have been traditional drawing all my life too and see this as still one of the most important tools.

  • 02

    What is the technological evolution that has marked you most and what will be, in your eyes, a turning point in this field?

    Realtime 3D viewports in modelling packages such as 3DS Max and latterly Eevee in Blender.

  • 03

    Explain your expertise, your interest in it and, more broadly, its importance in the computer world.

    Realtime helps you to edit things with real world reactions instantly such as shadows, physics etc. It makes you feel like you are making art rather than technical wireframe work.

  • 04

    Do so-called 'visionaries', such as Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg inspire you or do you have other role models?

    No, they don't really interest me. I am more interested in artists and designers who inspire me such as Isamu Noguchi. I am an artist/designer who tutors 3D app such as Blender and 3DS Max as well as using traditional art methods and combining this.
    Sometimes when we use computers as one of our tools, people bundle everyone into the "techy" category not so.

  • 05

    Provide a valuable anecdote related to your subject or your days at school.

    My art and design teacher suggested to me that art and design was my strongest subject. I was insulted at the time, seeing art as a silly subject, ha ha.

  • 06

    What would you say to an uncomfortable person in front of a screen who says that "IT is too complicated"?

    Try software that is more creative such as 3D or 2D if you don't like coding.

  • 07

    What are your other passions, related or non-related to computers?

    I love outdoor swimming, chess, making things in the real world, I draw everyday and I like World travel.

  • 08

    What makes you a Superprof in IT?

    I have been tutoring on Superprof for a few years now. I find the quality of students great. For example, other sites I have tutored on, many of the students who want a trial session fail to turn up. Whereas on Superprof the student pretty much always shows up and often goes on to take paid tuition work from me. I also like the booking system and general layout of the site.

    Superprof is also very reliable. They respond to any queries very quickly and always pay on time.
