James launched James Mellor Creative in 2012 to help people turn their ideas into usable, engaging and memorable content.  The business is built around his cartoon illustrations, complimented by his expertise in research and copywriting.  In these areas, he has worked with large institutions, SMEs, startups and individuals to get their unique messages across in publications, presentations, and online.

He is a member of the Cartoonists’ Club of Great Britain and his professional and personal cartoon artwork can be seen on his website, social media channels and in his illustrated books, Drawn From History and Drawn From 2017.

A History graduate from the University of York, James’ main interest outside of work is the past (which probably comes across in his cartoons).  As a supporter of Harlequins and Arsenal he is accustomed to long periods of disappointment punctuated by occasional moments of brilliance.

James lives in Rushden with his wife Rachel, daughter Talitha, and a small, sociopathic cat.
