Edo Pop: Japan's Past and Present-Jed Henry
Jacob Spori opens fall exhibits with a series of woodblock prints by the illustrator artist Jed Henry. Artist Jed Henry is restless, and this tendency has taken him all over the commercial art world. In 2007, he interned at Sony Pictures Animation, working on the film "Hotel Transylvania". In 2008 his film "KITES" won a Student Academy Award, as well as a Student Emmy. Tiring of animation, Jed switched his career to illustrating children's books for such publishers as Scholastic, Penguin and Harper Collins. In 2012 he made another leap, launching a line of Japanese woodblock prints, Ukiyo-e Heroes, which was the most-funded art project on Kickstarter.
