My name is James “Skip” Harvey and I’m a geek. Not just any geek, I’d like to imagine. I’d like to think I’m the kind of geek that represents the generation that got to see mainstream culture turned on its head and watched the Geek inherit the Earth.
My parents met at the planning committee for a Star Trek convention in Kansas City in 1976. I’m named after James T. Kirk, the “Skipper” of the Enterprise. This is in my blood. It’s who I am.
In 2010 I was honored to be a subject of the Morgan Spurlock documentary Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope, where I started on a long and painful journey to become a professional comic book artist. Now I’m proud to announce my first book: Dilettante.
