James Jean

I have spent a good chunk of my morning looking at the work of James Jean. He's the amazing talent behind Prada's Spring 08 campaign artwork.

I particularly love the Fairy Bag...
And the Trembled Blossoms animation from YouTube (a must see if you havn't already)...


His other work is equally amazing - especially the darker works. Love the contrast between the delicacy of the work with the imagery and themes.
"Using pictorial conventions from such varied sources as Japanese Woodblock prints, Northern Renaissance paintings and etchings, Chinese scroll paintings, Shanghai advertising posters, comics, anatomical charts, and vintage printed ephemera, Jean's images evoke a sense of fantasy and the subconscious, seductive in its delicacy and sensuality. " - Mars Destijl
