James Jean has had a very busy year (solo show at Martha Otero, video with Juxtapoz, monograph Rebus being released) but something a bit unexpected opened up: Jean began developing a line of fine jewelry, scarves, and objects with support from my friends in Japan that has culminated in a new webstore of Jean products, OVMLove.com.

James Jean just opened a solo exhibition, Rebus, at Martha Otero Gallery. After spending over a year working on a body of work, James found fantastic new ways to procrastinate and inspire himself when he needed a break. He let us in on a few tips recently in his Downtown Los Angeles studio, and we recorded them for you to practice at home. Watch after the jump . .

Juxtapoz.com is currently in Los Angeles, and yesterday, we spent the day with James Jean, half of the time spent at Martha Otero Gallery as Jean and the Otero staff were putting the finishing touches on Rebus, Jean's new solo exhibition opening Saturday, March 12. And then the day ended on a roof with a hand-flute version of "Yellow." More after the jump . . .

As we prepare to release our Juxtapoz Presents video profile on Sam Bassett, we look back at some of the great Juxtapoz portraits shot by the photographer. Mr. Bassett has been our contributing photo editor and integral part of our visual appearance for over 3 years, and seeing his a body of work in near full shows his common threads and experimental nature.
