James B. Emmett born in December 1985 is an American illustrator, painter and digital sequential artist. James was born in New York City, New York. A Communication Design major at Pratt Institute he studied illustration with instructors: Floyd Hughes, Lynne Foster, Rudy Gutierrez, and Veronica Lawlor.
In March 2010, James collaborated with writer Robert James Russell on Ex Occultus: Seal of Solomon which was published by Saint James Comics. This first initial story was a completely illustrated job as it involved penciling, inking, adding digital tone work, and even lettering the entire story. Ex Occultus follows the exploits of adventurer and fortune-hunter Francis Wakefield, the gruff and grizzled Englishman with a tortuous past.
Following the release of Ex Occultus, James started promoting his work at various conventions and met Mark Mazz, chief creative officer of AtlasUnleased at Stony Brook University’s I-CON Science Fiction 29. This chance encounter lead James to be one of the illustrators for an upcoming science-fiction graphic album titled,2112: Storyteller.
James currently freelances for Marvel Entertainment, is at work on another comic venture titled Spindle with Gordon Hurley, is working on an as yet untitled digital comic book with Studio 39 based in Manhattan, and continues to take on both illustration and graphic design commissions.
