Jesse LeDoux aka the guy who did the Shins album artwork

"A Warm light on a winters day"

Jesse LeDoux will be familiar to most people through his work on The Shins second album 'Chutes Too Narrow' although Jesse has also worked with Elliott Smith, Iron & Wine, Death Cab for Cutie, Pedro the Lion and The Little Ones to name a few. He's a regular designer for Suicide Squeeze (see below).

More recently and in keeping with the pre credit crunch tradition of wasting money on useless objects, Jesse created a lovely looking range of designer toys out that are available through Kidrobot.

Jesse's work can currently be seen up close as part of the 'creature Comforts' exhibition in Tokyo's super hip Sunshine Studio.

Below is the winter warmer 'Pink Bullets' by The Shins. The director was Adam Bizanski who also directed promo's for Wolf Parade and Arcade Fire.
