Prada + Graphic Novel = James Jean

You may recognize his work from Prada's Spring show, But James Jean Has produced illustrations for Target, Time, Rolling Stone and is the cover artist for the graphic Novel Fables.
I purchased a pair of booties from Prada's spring collection, and when they gave them to me in a James Jean Illustrated box, I must say I might have been almost equally excited about the packaging as I was for my new shoes! Plus, James (my BF) is a Fables reader, so even he took notice of the collection. Thus, melding our loves of fashion and graphic novels (comics).
Anyways, I am very excited to say that he is making his "fine art" premier entitled "Kindling" this sat. in NYC!
Here is the info-

I know what you mean-sometimes the packaging is even better than the items that come in them!
Love the photos you've posted, as well.
