James Jarvis

Born in London in 1970, Jarvis studied illustration at the University of Brighton and then at the Royal College of Art in London. He has shown his work at various exhibitions worldwide and contributed to a number of international style publications including The Face, Nova and Relax.

In 1998, James Jarvis created his first figure "Martin" for Silas, a London-based fashion company, which launched him into the Designer Vinyl scene. Since then his career has been busy, creating numerous characters and inventing fantasy worlds, such as the “World of Pain”, for the figures to live in.
Because of the success of the figures, James set up Amos to independently produce and distribute his' figures and open up his designs to a wider audience. So far Amos has released the successful In-Crowd series including Punk Rockers, Zombies and Heavy Metallers, King Ken, a giant ape from Skull Island and part one of the comic adventure 'Vortigern's Machine' which tells the story of two friends, Rusty and Wiggs, and how, wandering through their urban environment, they uncover some of life’s most pressing metaphysical questions.
