Author/Artist: James McCarthy
James McCarthy is originally from Kalamazoo, Michigan in the 1950s, and was part of the first generation of kids raised on television. Besides cartoons and comedies, he enjoyed the fantasy and sicence ficition shows. He also has fond memories of having multiple seasons, and has a special love for the snow and ice of winter, which he sees little of in his current home in Brandon, Florida.
He cites those childhood memories to be a great source of inspiration now, especially when listening to music: prog rock, classical, fusion jazz, new age, electronic and medieval. He has been seriously painting since 1999, and has exhibited artwork in galleries in the Tampa Bay area.
He graduated from Tampa Catholic High School and majored in painting at the University of South Florida. After school, he worked at Design/Art, a commercial art studio in Tampa which was run by his father, for 25 years until it closed in 2001.
