James Arthur Ville (1988 - present) was born in Guadalajara, Mexico but grew up in the United States of America. His passion for illustrating began at 4 years of age. Watching television shows such as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Dragon Ball Z inspired him to transition from pencil drawings to illustrating digitally. He spends most of his focus drawing for young adults and youth. From book covers to children's books, most of his work is done from home where he can be close to his four children in Southern Oregon.

Every year, during the month of October, artists participate in a world-wide social event called Inktober. The movement encourages artists to create art every day during the whole month; a total of 31 drawings. Traditionally, the submissions are expected to be black and white line art. In 2017, James Art Ville accepted the challenge for the first time. Instead of adhering to the official Inktober calendar prompts, he chose to use his own artwork from his childhood as inspiration and re-created them using his developed style and skills. These drawings feature characters from his favorite cartoons, comics, anime, and video games. Fan Art has always fueled his creativity and in these pages he set out to not only pay homage to that unfettered spirited artist of his youth, but also find ways to build upon and improve it!
