This Devil Would Wear Prada [Too]..

6 Jul

I happened to see the SS08 Prada campaign in one of those Fashion magazines that one submerges into – in that emotionally vacant interlude between a cheerful, summer day and the Frankensteinian dentist’s chamber. And in those precious moments between gorgeous sun, and plastic Novocaine stupor, I fell in love with the Prada Spring/Summer 2008 Campaign…

Developed and illustrated by Los Angeles artist James Jean – an American of Taiwanese descent and winner of five consecutive Eisner awards, and three consecutive Harvey awards – the art, like the collection, is clever, elegant, sassy, and sexy.

    o my god! if you like this guy run, don’t walk, to his last blog post (http://www.processrecess.com/index.php?uid=BF4ACD). i’m subscribed to his rss feed and was stunned to see what he posted: his layered Photoshop files! He’s only keeping them up for a day, so get ’em quick. It’s incredibly instructive to peel these things back a layer at a time and sneak a peak into his process.
