James Watts has been working with us at Humboldt American Press as the illustrator on our recent publication of “TheSagebrush Singers”, a children’s book.
James came to us with an impressive record in illustrating books. His experience as a published illustrator and his prompt and professional approach to the task fully confirmed his outstanding reputation. Mr. Watts is easy to work with, very receptive to team input and highly creative and sensitive in fine-tuning his artwork to complement the text without unnecessary overlap.
For this project, “The Sagebrush Singers”, James personally researched the High Desert environment in depth, and then completed our project on time and to everybody’s satisfaction. The book was recently featured with great success at the annual “Cowboy Poetry Gathering” in Elko, Nevada, an annual event organized by the “Western Folklife Center”.
We, at Humboldt American Press sincerely hope to be able to collaborate with James again soon; we recommend him without the slightest reservation for any artistic endeavor he might choose to participate in.
