Growing Together Button by James McInvale


Design By:
James McInvale I have been creating art for nearly my whole life. One of my earliest projects was an attempt to color my entire body green with a Crayola marker. Although I never got past my left arm, my passion for creating art led me to study Illustration at the Savannah College of Art and Design. It was here that I found interest in conceptual image making. I enjoy translating intangible concepts into vivid and enlightening visuals. Having never been a stunning conversationalist, I find my illustrations to be an enjoyable and satisfying way to broadcast my ideas. I continue to work hard to put my creative drive to good use. As an illustrator, I strive to express complex ideas in a language that is accessible to anyone. Through unexpected juxtaposition of imagery and visual metaphor I create images that say more than any number of words could. It is this visual problem solving that I enjoy so much, and I challenge myself with each new piece to explore new visual solutions.

Artist Statement

With this image I tried to capture the idea of making our ever-growing society more in-tune with the world and nature. Our current habits and way of life are becoming increasingly destructive to our planet, and most people seem to operate under a “this isn’t going to be my problem” mindset. But it is our problem, we are running out of time. The sooner we can enact official policies that prioritize our world—and not just corporations and people—the safer we will be. - James McInvale
