Upper Playground T-Shirt Pre Release at Comic ConJuxtapoz // Friday, 23 Jul 2010
Five years ago, you could ask 10 comic book and illustrations fanatics who their favorite artist was, and many would have said James Jean. Using that style as his base, James has evolved into one of the most prolific and sought after fine artists in contemporary art. Fusing erotic themes with fine art, Jean has solo exhibitions around the world as well as commercial endeavors with Prada, The New York Times, and Rolling Stone. James has offered fresh images for three new t-shirts, all of which will be pre-released at this year’s Comic Con.
Also exclusive to Comic Con will be two t-shirts from Alex Pardee, who has utilized his twisted animation style to do extensive illustration work for various comics and is also fresh off of releasing his visually stunning animated series with the WB Network, “Chadam.”
Lastly will be two shirts from Pushead, whose body of work with Metallica and other heavy metal bands stands for itself, but furthermore his line work and characters have made him a direct influence to many of the prominent comic book authors today.
Currently, these tees will not be available anywhere but Comic Con at the Upper Playground booth #4631. Get a convention map and find that booth before everyone else does.
