Rockin' Jelly Bean

October 13, 2004 | Posted in Editorial Features by jonnobot


We're grooving on the creepily sexy (or sexily creepy, depending how you look at them) pop art pinup illustrations of Los Angeles-based artist Rockin' Jelly Bean, whose work reminds us of something the bastard love child of A. Vargas and R. Crumb would've created. Already a semi-legend in Japan, U.S. audiences can catch up with his "exploits of the female physique" via his current exhibition in Portland, on view through the end of October.
