Filipino born and Canada based, the artist is making quite a name for himself in comics like Timeless and Hero. According to his Facebook page, he was commissioned to sketch Thor while at HalCon (Halifax Comic Convention) a fortnight ago.
Meanwhile, I'm particularly loving the Sandman fan-art on his website.
The reason he's pinged on our radar is his sudden and very vocal love of the Death Note anime. First of all, he celebrated Canada Day with an interview on Comics Coast to Coast, a podcast with Brian Dunaway and Joel Duggan. It's an hour long, highly enjoyable discussion of all things comic art and fandom orientated.
From about the 18.35 minute mark, they start talking about anime, with James Neish's Death Note kudos kicking in around 19.00.
"If you're not really an anime fan," Neish told his interviewers, "but you want to dip your toe in the water a bit, I recommend this series called Death Note." He described it as 'horror', 'Sci-Fi' and 'smartly written'. Dunaway instantly began searching for it on-line, then linked to the Viz Media page from his site.
Even more recently, out and proud James Neish turned up in the Gallery of Geek section of The Advocate - a digital magazine focusing on all things gay - where he showed off a great selection of his artwork. Including plenty with a fond appreciation of the male physique, though unfortunately none Death Note related.
However, the accompanying interview with Brian Anderson (November 8th 2015) asked what geeky things are currently fueling his obsession. Neish answered that he's been binge-watching Death Note. So perhaps that professional fan-art is just around the corner!
