Fables Covers by James Jean

Fables Covers by James Jean – As most of you know, James Jean is one of my favorite illustrators and this collection of his Fables Covers is really great.  Not only are the reproductions of the final illustrations good…but Jean takes you behind the scenes as far as how he goes about his process (not super in-depth but deep enough to understand how he’s creating his work).  I loved seeing his pencils, how he’s using digital media to his advantage and how much traditional work he’s doing before his enters the digital realm.  I’m also a big fan of this gentleman’s imagination and his ability to capture and express such powerful narratives in a single image.  Great stuff.
