My Drawing for Sequential Art professor likes to highlight artists who are well-known in their fields but tend to be unknown by the general public.
JAMES JEAN is a fine artist who used to do commercial and comic illustration. He has worked on ad campaigns for companies such as Prada. In comics he is most known for painting covers, famously for Fables and for Umbrella Academy, as well as for using design concepts from illustration. He has won seven Eisner awards and three Harvey awards.
