DANIEL BLUE: MEET JAMES HUME >>>

 Tacomafilesart Pictured here in his natural habitat, (read: the shadowy reaches of a neighborhood bar), the elusive and quixotic artist, rocker icon James Hume is biting his clothing like a rabid animal. Custom clothing for the custom man, James Hume likes the symbol of the skull.

You may have seen his art hanging at places like The Swiss, Sanford and Son, Rampart, and the party he started with his Dead Artist friends: KULTURE LAB. I capitalized that last bit to emphasize its importance, lest we forget how to do things in this town.

The son of the great and mighty television gardener Edward Hume, James grew up to be a total rebel and front man for the hair metal band Roadrunner. After marriage and fatherhood, James decided that San Francisco was a bit hot, and moved back to the cradle of his family in and around Auburn. Tacoma is a natural choice for a man like James, unsatisfied with the depressing Auburn nightlife, he quickly rose in popularity as an artist and a party animal in this rich mecca we call T-town.

James now owns a home in Lakewood and often can be found at art parties, gallery openings and anything hip with his beautiful girlfriend Jennifer.
