PUBLICITY & ACCOLADES “I've worked with James for 8 years and have always had the highest regard for his creativity and artistic ability. James has worked with me as both a staff designer and as an independent contractor and he is an asset in either role. When generating concepts and designs for shows in development, James was often a person I turned to who could come up with fresh ideas and a new perspective. He is dedicated, hard working, immensely talented and constantly learning and improving upon his skills. I look forward to working with him again because he is a gifted artist and upstanding person with great integrity.” June 18, 2009 Robin Pickens, Executive in Charge of Design & Graphics, Telepictures Productions (Div of Time Warner) Telepictures Inc ”We hired James to create a program ID package for a show pilot being produced for A&E Networks.
