Appreciation Friday: Jean Jullien

Jean Jullien is a French graphic artist currently living in Los Angeles, where he continues to develop his observational, critical and playful style of illustrations. “I try to capture moments that people react to, to establish a connection with the viewer,” he says. Jean espouses a humorous reflection of the times that we live in. “My work is much like journalism,” he says. “I observe what is around me and try to sum it up into visual articles or stories.”

IKEA print: SHELFIE

‘Shelfie’ is inspired by a quote from Chuck Palahniuk’s cult film ‘Fight Club’ – “The things you own end up owning you”.
The French-born artist presents a humorous take on that concept and also how the human element fits when it comes to creating balance. “This balance having to rely purely on the individual is something I thought could be interesting,” he says. “A literal take on this idea.”

My best work

REVIEW: Janice L. Loper 5.0 out of 5 stars Emotional. Truthful. Intensely absorbing. Eloquent. November 29, 2018 Format: Kindle Edition You get such an emotional response from each page. Your mind shouts, “Yes, This is truth.” As you read. Some passages leave you bleeding and stunned. Others have you shaking your head. These collections and musings are quite stirring. The truth can be quite ugly.
