THE AMAZING JIM SMITH!!!
These are caricatures from the sketchbook "Deadly Are The Naked" by the amazing JIM SMITH. For those who aren't familiar with Jims work, he is one of the most amazing draftsman working in animation today and probably of all time. He's one of the only people I know who can make a drawing so solid it makes you feel like you can reach into the paper and grab hold of it. On top of Jims amazing drawing ability he's a hell of a guitarist and one of the nicest people you'll ever meet. Jim gave me my first paid animation job, cleaning up his storyboard drawings, a position for which I was highly underqualified but was paid for none the less. If you're interested in seeing more of Jims work you can visit his website at www.jimsmithcartoons.com (also in the links section) I also highly recommend purchasing his sketchbooks "Lonely Are The Naked" and his latest "Deadly Are The Naked" go to his site for more info.
