Name: James Joyce

"Better known as Joycey to his friends.. or Jah-C.. El Joycerino.. or His Joyceness, if you wish, is one of my most favourite people. A creative talent that shows no boundaries, by day he's the in-demand designer showing the way to the ad agencies, but to me he's just my good friend - and a man i've shared a huge amount of fun times with."


Occupation: Artist and Designer (Website / Twitter)

Most useful Spanish phrase: “Muchas gracias mi amigo."

I don't speak much Spanish so basic good manners are essential.

All-time favourite party experience in Ibiza: The best club party experience for me was Circoloco at DC10 in July 2006, It was the first time I'd been to DC10, Villalobos was playing, It was super loud and it was before they put the windows in to curb the noise so you had a real sense of being outside for a proper al fresco party. The atmosphere was amazing, I remember us all getting there from about one in the afternoon in the blazing heat until late in the evening, continuing the party back at our villa in the hills near Santa Gertrudas.

I've been to Ibiza three times over the years and really some of the best parties i've experienced have been at the villa with my close friends, including The Amateur himself... The second time we went out we took over some CD decks and set them up poolside, we took turns playing music, got dressed up and had a very nice time.

Favourite place to chill in the Balearics: Benirras beach on the north side of Ibiza is a favourite.

If stranded in the Balearics for the rest of my life I would... Set up camp in Mallorca with my wife and little boy, grow some orange trees, make olive oil, build a man-shed and spend the rest of my days painting pictures in exchange for the local Vino.

My luxury item would be... A yacht.

The book i'd take would be... A sketchbook.
