"the king"

james jean, who im pretty confident to say is leading the illustration game at the moment - started somewhere too, he's worked hard to get where he's at, and contrary to belief, him being asian has nothing to do with it (but it helps)!

i keep going back to his gesture sketches and arcylic/ink figure studies - theyre BANANAS!!

here's a few from http://www.jjeanius.net








like custode said, the way he captures 'movement' is practically impeccable!









^(my favorite)

and as custode said, the way he handles the arbitrary color is just so fresh looking to me!

check out more of his work at http://www.jamesjean.com and be sure to stop by his blog to see how he handles his illustrations!


cheers,
tyler
