James Silvani is a Maui-based comic book illustrator and fine artist. He grew up in Laguna Beach and received an art degree from San Francisco State University. He has been working as a freelance artist since 1994 and has provided art for Disney’s Darkwing Duck, Duck Tales, Star Wars, The Muppets and Mickey & Friends. 

 

Who/what are your biggest influences?

 

I was inspired by both comic books and strips from an early age. In the newspapers, I jumped up first thing in the morning to read Peanuts and Popeye. I was also immediately drawn to Disney Comics. I had stacks upon stacks of Carl Barks’ duck comics long before I ever picked up a super hero book.

 

You’ve worked on comics, magazines, children’s books and greeting cards. Have you had a favorite project? Is there something different you’d like to try in the future?

 

The Darkwing Duck comics I did a few years ago have brought me the most personal and professional satisfaction. I feel very lucky to be considered a “Disney Duck Artist” and to be able to work on licensed properties that I love. 

 

I have my own original comics and stories that I work on when I can. I look forward to a day when that will be my full time job.

 We’re all getting excited for Comic-Con. Do you have any special plans?


This will be my 38th year attending and my 4th as an exhibitor. Amy Mebberson and I will be sharing our regular table F-07 in the exhibitors section with books, prints and original art for sale. I will also be on the Random House books panel promoting my new book - Draw-A-Saurus: Everything You Need to Know to Draw Your Favorite Dinosaurs. 

I know you’re an animal lover. Do you ever take inspiration for your characters from your pets?

 

My two dogs and my cat usually lay right next to my drawing desk, so I can’t help but be subtly influenced by them. I guess that’s why my characters look hungry all the time.

I love the duality of your new Lilo & Stitch lithograph. What led you to choose that design?

 

I loved the growth that Stitch had as a character over the course of the movie without losing the naughtiness at his core. I intended the coolness of the alien character’s colors to be a nice balance to the warmth of Stitch’s new ohana.
