James AdamsJames Adams (b.1969)

"I draw every moment I can ...I visualize the illustration before I even buy the illustration board for it ... after going through reference material, I take a walk in the park or around the corner to gather my thoughts"

US artist James C. Adams was born and raised in Temple, Texas, and currently resides in Fort Collins, Colorado.

Specializing in Goth inspired illustrations, his artwork mainly focuses on the female form, portrayed in a variety of fantasy roles. From dedications to the goddess in all things to exploration in the sensual, sexy nature of the female spirit.

His drawings come to life with bite and snarl - an artist that creates it like he sees it, female empowerment outside the confinement of labels.
