If you are not familiar with the work of James Jean, you should take a moment to check out his site. A Taiwanese-American artist, his work has hints of the East and West as clear influence, and to try to tie him down with just one style is impossible. With a nice balance between fine art and commerical work, he is that artist many artists strive to be, riding that line between keeping your art a passion, yet also managing to find a fan base and make a living off of it.
One cool way he decided to do that was to release a book of temporary tattoos of his amazing work. Though the book is not set to drop until September 16th, you can pre-order it now and ensure you have one of the nicest collections of temporary tattoos ever.
Growing up in the 80's, temporary tattoos were always the same thing. A big black cat or the word "Mom" inside a heart. Maybe a butterfly or two for the ladies. Other than that, nothing. But it is safe to say times have changed. One of the cooler things we have seen in a while. We hope more artists jump on-board with this idea. I wouldn't mind walking around with some James Jean or Tara McPherson art on me.
