Hugs and Kisses: From James Jean

James Jean is utterly stricken by Midas Touch. Everything he draws sells for thousands, Prada wants him, major magazines want him, comics publishers want him, and inevitably the big book publishers have come calling.

Okay, so this is some pre-buzz buzz.

Later this summer, we’ll be releasing the XOXO: Hugs and Kisses postcard book of James Jean illustrations. Fans of Yoshimoto Nara, Jordan Crane, and Ai Yamuguchi, as well as existing collectors of James’ work, are going to L-O-V-E these whimsically dark, otherworldly postcards. Here’s a preview of what’s coming!

Lately I've seen interviews with James in every imaginable art magaize from High Fructose to Theme to the UK's IMagineFX. But it was still The Comics Interpreter that did the first, and most extensive print interview with JJ, just before he blew up large.
