RIFT Preview – James Jean at Comic Con
Over the past decade, James Jean has wowed the worlds of art and pop culture with his delicate, hauntingly beautiful, exquisitely rendered paintings. His work has graced comic book covers, a fashion line from Prada, art galleries and museums around the world. I’m very pleased to share some images from James’ latest work, Rift.
Housed in a slipcase cover, Rift features 15 gold foil stamped panels showcasing a series of images that fold to reveal different eye-catching landscapes. Here’s a preview video James posted to his website:
Chronicle will be debuting Rift with a limited number of copies at Comic Con in San Diego this July, and James will be signing copies on Saturday, July 24th at 12PM.
