livestrong james jean 08 James Jean is ArtStrong

That’s James Jean. His artistry is more lethal than cancer. That’s why Lance Armstrong’s Livestrong Foundation has tapped him to help raise awereness by creating one of a series of yellow chalk pieces that will be peppered throughout the streets of L.A. Jean’s ethereal creation for the project looks very much like triumph over a monster. (to me anyway, because flowers and monsters go to together, duh) It sits at the Venice Boardwalk.

The idea for the chalk art murals is an extension of the the Livestrong Foundations Open Roads Campaign during the Agmen Tour of California. Nike and Livestrong staff handed out packets of yellow chalk to fans at the start and finish lines and asked them write messages on the pavement. Very touching, see pics below.

Highly awarded and ever evolving, James is a graduate of NYC’s School of Visual Arts. He has  illustrated for The New York Times, Rolling Stones and Atlantic Records amongst others, and his creations have adorned Prada’s Epicenter stores and graced one of their collections (Summer/Fall 2008). He currently resides in LA.

  • Ejaculate Sperm

    Ejaculate count is the amount of sperm concentration of sperms in our seminal liquid. A lot of factors are taken into consideration to help measure the semen count of a man like for example the true length of time between ejaculations, semen sample analysis, how the sample is kept when being transported to the lab. Volume pills is trully amazing absolutely herbal formula that can increase greatly the volume of ejaculate volume liquid by as much as 500%. The so leading herbal tablet has some ancient Mexican herbs, minerals and vitamins. A semen volume analysis evaluates certain characteristics of a male’s semen volume and the sperm amount that is contained in the semen fluid volume. It may be done while investigating a couple’s infertility problems or maybe after a vasectomy to ensure that the procedure was done successful. It is also used for testing donors for semen fluid donation. Nowadays it’s really possible to increase semen with really safe and natural ways like taking herbal pills from the various online shops.
