Part of the 33 short films for Cannes, “To Each His Own Cinema”, here’s Cronenberg‘s offering: “At the Suicide of the Last Jew in the World in the Last Cinema in the World”
Spooky, but what’s spookier is that I can hear my mom talking over it in the cinema.
A Taiwan native, James Jean currently lives in Los Angeles, city of fumbled TV projects. His unique background brings a decidedly ornate touch to his work, making his comic covers really pop out on the rack.
After graduating from SVA (NY School of Visual Arts) in 2001, Jean quickly earned a following with his work as a DC Comics cover artist. With two consecutive Eisner awards, two Harvey awards, two gold medals and a silver from the Society of Illustrators of LA, and a gold medal from the Society of Illustrators of NY, James has worked for numerous magazines from Time Magazine, NY Times and Rolling Stone.
While he has worked on Batgirl, Green Arrow and other DC Comics, he is most well-known for the stunning artwork he’s developed for the Vertigo series Fables. Many of his fans rejoiced at the original 8-page story included in the Fables graphic novel ’1001 Nights of Snowfall.’
Below is a magazine piece he produced centering on the male obsession with Star Wars.
While he in constantly working on new pieces for trade magazines, he is currently in deep work mode on several long-range projects.
I encourage everyone to look at his blog ProcessRecess to see the amazing evolution of his artwork.
