He’s also known for his stacked illustration prints which depict iconic people and places of the North East.

Speaking about his new cards, the designer said: “I know how passionate the Mariners are so I wanted to bring this design into my iconic card ranges along with Nando’s and Greggs etc.

James is a NUFC fan, but he says the Mariners have a special place in his heart.

"I’m a Geordie through and through, so Newcastle United is my team,” he explained. “But South Shields Football Club have a huge place in my heart. The team have been very helpful in my success and I love to give back where I can.

"I think the appointment of Kevin Phillip is brilliant for the club and the fan base. It’s all black and white at my end, but South Shields Football Club is great and the best in the area with their ever-growing facilities and superb footballers.”
