JEAN-PIERRE TARGETE


Jean-Pierre TargeteAt the age of five Jean-Pierre Targete picked up his first comic book, it was Batman. Fascinated by the powerful compositions and muscular heroes in this fantasy world Jean automatically began to copy what he saw and to the shock of his parents he had a photographic memory and an uncanny imagination. No one could predict the next course this young prodigy's life would take.

Drawing constantly for the next eleven years Jean harnessed his talent and taught himself how to draw. Inspired by the fantasy masters of the day Frazetta, Boris, Corben and the Hilderbrandts Jean-Pierre relentlessly strove to master his Art.

Barely seventeen Jean-Pierre after the encouragement of his high school teachers decided to enter a major Florida art scholarship competition. His aspiring portfolio won him a full scholarship to the School of Visual Arts in NewYork. By his senior year at SVA Jean-Pierre was already illustrating for major book publishers. His fantastic visions and strict attention to detail have made him one of the top illustrators in the competitive book cover field and the first choice of many art directors. He has had work exhibited at the Society of Illustrators in New York and many galleries around the country. He has been featured in The Society of Illustrators annual books as well as Spectrum, the best in contemporary fantastic art. His paintings have been published all over the world, and have graced the covers of sci-fi and fantasy's most popular authors. Some of his most notable work has been for Roger Zelazny, Diana L. Paxon and Adrienne Martine-Barnes, and Harry Harrison. Most recently he has produced covers for Gregory Benford, Greg Bear, Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman, and the fast selling Starfist books by David Sherman and Dan Cragg. Look for his artwork on your local bookstore shelf and see for your self this emerging new Artist.
