Meeting James Jean

Me with James Jean, after asking him to sign my copy of XOXO: Hugs and Kisses, a collection of 30 wonderful postcards that I dare not taint with my imperfect human handwriting.

Not only did I finally get my hands on XOXO, but I also got the number one slot for book signing after his artist talk in Ateneo last Friday. All thanks to Fully Booked! I’ve always been a silently fan of his art – he instantly had me at his Fables comic covers, but most especially at Prada’s Spring/Summer 2008 collection… which I think marked one of the best moments in history when art and fashion came together and so successfully produced something this wonderful and ethereal.

This will never get old.

Wishing for all the goodies in his webstore, OVM. He presented some pictures of  scarves with his art on them. James Jean’s art is good, but the fact that you can wear it makes it so much better.

P.S. I still can’t get over how he 1) replied to my tweet 2) retweeted me
