Los Angeles based artist James Jean has a swag of awards under his belt, including the ‘gold Medal Society of Illustrators LA 2001, Eisner Award Best Cover Artist 2004 – 2006, Harvey Award Best Cover Artist 2005, 2006, American Illustration 22, 23, 25, and Society of Illustrators 45, 46, 47′. It’s not hard to see why. His work is almost biblical in its imagery, alluding to this classicism in its damp colours and allegorical themes. [see more work by James Jean]
