Friday Deep-sea Picture: Illustrator James Jean

"Tame version" of an AIDS awareness poster by Fables cover artist James Jean

Talented illustrator and Fables cover artist James Jean has a blog called ProcessRecess (awesome) where he’s showcasing different versions of an award winning series of posters he did for a European NGO dedicated to fighting HIV/AIDS. The posters were conceived under the direction of the TBWA/Paris. For this particular assignment, the agency was seeking an “ecosystem of creatures and environments comprised of genitalia and porn clippings”. Well now, that should get the message across. In a hostile environment, like the deep-sea, you need protection.

For now, enjoy Jean’s technique, so nicely represented in the image above. Later, you can follow his process and his more explicit treatments at the website here. Warning! NSFW. Not necessarily safe for work.

  1. It’s so true. I noticed he sells some prints from his website. I’ve been looking for something to decorate the kids bedroom, but so much of his art is too scary, not as innocent as it first appears.
