James Powell Art

Ask me anything   James Powell is an Englishman living in Minnesota and still spells the word "COLOUR" with a "U". His artwork and cartoony pictures have been seen in publications and galleries in England, Japan, Australia and in The States.

He continues to create original artwork, sculptures and toys and get paint on anything that gets in his way. He is also Britain's first freelance Godzilla for hire.

I am on the board of alteredesthetics who will be celebrating their 10th year of bringing art to the Twin Cities on Tuesday 29th April.

A big part of my job right now is planning that event (hence the lack of art posts lately) but for the 10 day count down I will be posting caricatures of each member of the board - Megan is our amazing design director who is made of all kinds of magic and came up with the Altered Esthetics 10 year logo.

Finally got some time to paint this weekend. I started working on an idea I scribbled on a napkin (check out the detail in that!) - it’s a sort of gender reversal of a certain smuggler. Still a way to go.

Apparently it’s “Bring your action figure to work day”. I have a job with a desk as if I am a real life grown up! #actionfigureworkday

I put a sweaty little Ewok in my terrarium. I am now a benevolent god of my own little Endor.
