James Jean has been and still is one of the big influences on my work. He had dissappeared for a while, but he's back creating new beautiful works of art. I used to run into him a lot in downtown Los Angeles, but from the looks of it on instagram, I believe he is now overseas somewhere living life and creating once more. If you for some reason happen upon this post, James Jean, glad to see you making new work again! Definitely an inspiration to us all.
Find him on instagram!
