Photos & Art by James Velasquez

Welcome to an exploration of artistic ideas and concepts that I’m currently working on including photos, videos, drawings and a variety of mediums.

Most of what I post is my own work, but occasionally, I may also post things which were not originally mine, always citing the original sources whenever possible.

Besides working in theatre and music, I’m also a freelance artist, photographer and designer based in New Orleans.
