If I could create my own world, James Jean would draw it.

I love the art of James Jean. Realism meets spectacular fantasy, violence, fairy tales, and tattoos. He is an amazing artist and I adore his work. I am going to assume that some people have no idea who I am talking about, but, when they see his art may recognize it. He has done work with Prada, illustrated numerous comics and comic covers and has won countless awards. He is in my top 5 favorite artists of all time and almost everything I see that he has created I want to tattoo on my body (and I will do that with some of it!)

To see more JJ then I am posting his website is: http://www.jamesjean.com/ and this is a great gallery of his comic art: http://www.comicartcommunity.com/gallery/categories.php?cat_id=165

So here’s a little JJ to creatify your day… the first picture, will be my first JJ tattoo, and is one of my very favorites.

    The pink piece is called-what else?-Pink. It was for Nylon magazine for an article about the much loved color.

    Oh, the other piece is called Chocolate Moth and it was created for hint mints.
    For a ton of JJ work go to his site:

    I did get “pink” tattooed on my calf. My favourite tattoo. Love all his work. His covers for Fables introduced me to the series. Also, his work for the graphic novel Umbrella Academy is great.
