My name is James Burks. For the past fifteen years I've worked as an artist in the animation industry for companies like Disney, Warner Brothers, and Nickelodeon. Projects I've worked on include the Emperor's New Groove, Atlantis, Treasure Planet, Home on the Range, Space Jam, the Iron Giant and the television shows, Wow Wow Wubbzy, Ni-hao Kai-lan, the Dinosaur Train and most recently on Fan Boy and Chum Chum.
Currently I'm writing and illustrating my own books. My first graphic novel for kids, GABBY AND GATOR, published by Yen Press, was a Junior Library Guild selection. I have an upcoming picture book with Lerner/Carolrhoda entitled BEEP AND BAH, an upcoming graphic novel with Scholastic/Graphix, and I'm illustrating a picture book for S&S/Aladdin.
If you're interested in working with me please contact my agent.
