simsjames1James Sims

 

JW’s career started in 1995 with his very first BOBA FETT drawing. “I posted it on Facebook just to show my friends and see what they thought. The reaction was more than I had ever expected. I was off drawing like crazy, and before I knew it I had people offering to pay me to draw them something and HOOLIGAN ALLEY PRODUCTIONS was born.”

simsjameshooliganalleylogoIn 2017, JW battled illness and an amputation; all the while, his art had been the thing that kept his head above water. That’s when he decided, there is no better time than now, to pursue his dream and resurrect ‘DARKEST NIGHT’ (a comic he actually started in 1997). He began to plot out the first story arc and quickly realized he was going to need help writing this thing. At the same time JW started working on a short 5 page story entitled, ‘EL DIABLO AZUL: IRISH WAKE’. The story was written by Derek Adnams and features the character El Diablo Azul created by Michael Waggoner.JW then enlisted the help of first time comic writer Stephen Kelley. JW and Stephen worked together to flesh out the first two issues of ‘DARKEST NIGHT’. At the same time JW had several other ideas for books and one of these ideas was called, ‘FALL FROM GRACE’ (originally titled Hope Falls) with writer, Daniel Hamm and illustrator, Roy Stewart.

simsjamesproject34Currently JW has become the artist on “Sinful Justice” for Virtuosity Entertainment and writer Stephen Dodd (issue #1 currently available). He has also done the colors for comics “Police State” #2 (Nathaniel Broadus), “Arcane” by Ross Kennedy, among some other stuff that have not been announced yet.
