James Jean is more known for his fine art gallery work than his commercial illustrations but he’s worked extensively for DC Comics as a cover artist as well as Prada, ESPN and Atlantic records. The Taiwanese-American artist has his work published in bound volumes and has been compared by the New York Times to Maxfield Parrish


I’m not badI’m just drawn that way.” – Jessica Rabbit

There’s something special about pin-up art. They’re idealized images that are erotic without being graphic. A pin-up is a throwback to a simpler time when a bit of art could be a motivator and not just another X rated click. Arguably pin-ups objectify women but it’s just as true that it’s an art form embraced by modern women who feel empowered by Bad Girl Art. Rockabilly chic, Suicide Girls, Dita Von Teese; The pin-up is out there and alive in performances, photography, fashion music and tattoos

Sangfroid's unabashed use of punctuation and grammar has made him a literary standout on the internet. A rising star in the urban/romance/horror/science fiction/Nancy Drew fiction market, Sangfroid is the talk of the local McDonald's. His dog actually ate the first page of his magnum opus "That Foggy Night" and compared it to other great works like the weekly circular for its absorbent qualities.

    This Pin-Up is actually pretty boring compared to some of his other work. I highly recommend following the link.
