jesse ledoux for mayor

Wow, my last 9 posts (apart from the one wishing Jonny a happy birthday) were all somehow music related. It is probably getting annoying for most of you to read my opinions on which artist I think you should or should not listen to. (Listen to Patrick Wolf!) I don’t want this blog to become another music blog, that was not my intention when I started this thing. Well, I actually don’t know what my intentions were, but it probably has something to do with me being able to rant about whatever I wanted to to the public! (like now)

Anyways, before my A.D.D. carries out any further, here's the main point of this post: my pick for artist of the moment. This time, I am going to tell you all about Jesse LeDoux – an amazing illustrator/graphic designer who does numerous album covers and posters for bands. I first discovered LeDoux when I purchased The Shin’s Chutes Too Narrow album back in 2003. He created the whole CD package, from the booklet and inlay to the disc itself; the whole thing is just absolutely gorgeous to look at!!! In 2004, he started LeDouxville, a visually stunning website which essentially act as an online portfolio. You can check out LeDouxville at www.ledouxville.com and purchase Jesse's posters at Patent Pending Industries. Also, right now, there is a limited edition of 80 signed and numbered prints available at the LeDouxville store. Each print has a unique drawing, which were compiled together to create the flipbook cartoon. Very cool! You can watch the 15 seconds cartoon here. Enjoy!

Also I like how when you leave a comment it says 'choose an identity'.
