James Taylor

Principal Artist

Growing up in a cardboard box in windy rural South Wales, James discovered art by scribbling on the walls in crayon. For many years dreamed that he would get to work as a games artist (or possibly work on science fiction movies featuring giant robots and laser whips—he was young, and there was no rush to decide).  Eventually, through the wonders of the modern interweb highway, he got a job working on GBA titles in Leeds (UK) and was partly responsible for Barbie Horse Adventures and inversely the GBA version of Max Payne.  Finally he met a lovely American girl, moved, married her, and somehow ended up in a cardboard box in windy rural Champaign working at Volition as an “artist”.  He no longer uses crayons – that’s progress for you.
