Giant Robot is proud to host a rare signing by Los Angeles artist James Jean.

Jean was born in Taiwan in 1979. Raised in New Jersey, he graduated from New York City's School of Visual Arts in 2001. Along with his award-winning cover art for DC Comics' Fables, Jean has produced painterly, fantastic, and diverse illustrations for Time Magazine, The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Spin, ESPN, Atlantic Records, Target, Playboy, Nike, and Reebok among many others. In 2008, his artwork was the inspiration for Prada's Spring clothing line. He was also the cover artist and feature story of Giant Robot 54.

At GR2, Jean will be signing, Kindling, a high-quality, oversized, keepsake portfolio featuring 12 previously unpublished prints, in addition to the third installment of his highly collectible, limited-edition art book series, Process Recess. Also available will be Jean's skateboard decks made to commemorate the 15th anniversary of Giant Robot magazine and sold exclusively by the Giant Robot stores.
