Fantastical World of James Jean

Step into the fantastical world of James Jean and get ready to be amazed. The Taiwanese-American visual artist is one of the most talented people of our generation. He’s known in the world of comics thanks to his beautiful covers of DC Comics for which he received numerous accolades including seven Eisner awards, three consecutive Harvey awards, two gold medals and a silver from the Society of Illustrators of Los Angeles, and a gold medal from the Society of Illustrators of New York. He’s also worked in advertising for such clients as Prada and Phillip Lim.

His art has splashed across the spring collection from Prada.

He has done loads of covers for FABLES, an ongoing Vertigo comic book.
