James, an ever-evolving Performance Artist, carries the legacy of his past as the world's greatest Marilyn Monroe impersonator. Although he retired his Marilyn act in 1997, his visual illusion of her is still considered the best there ever was. He garnered numerous national television appearances on the most popular talk shows of the 80s and 90s. By 1996 he landed on a giant Billboard in the center of Times Square as Marilyn Monroe, Judy Garland and Bette Davis with Supermodel Linda Evangelista. Additionally, his 1991 ad as Marilyn Monroe with horn-rimmed glasses for l.a. Eyeworks is passed around the internet and copied repeatedly for tattoos and art galleries everywhere. The ad image shot by Greg Gorman may be THE most misidentified photo of Marilyn Monroe ever. The image looks so much like the real Marilyn that it wound up on a series of commemorative stamps of Marilyn Monroe for the Republic of Africa in 2014! The Africans have yet to realize the faux pas.
