There should be a book with all this stuff, like those books called "The art of..." I think the best drawings in many, many years were created by you and John K.

Those Spumco comic books had some of the greatest drawings ever.

Jesse said...

wow! to think I've owned the book for so long ,and never seen the originals. didn't you do all of the art for "COMIC BOOK"?

Jim Smith said...

Luis, their is a book coming called the Art of Spumco, and is close to finished.
Jesse, I drew the bug story and the fishing story. The babysitting story was done by Vincent Waller. Mike Fontanelli drew the remote control, butcher shop and barber shop stories. The barber shop was never published. John K. drew many of the panels for all the stories.

I love how Jimmy looks in these comics! You Spumco Big Shots are pretty talented guys!

The Art of Spumco is being edited by Amid Amidi, right? I hope you can get at least some of the barber shop panels in there! John has posted panels of that one on his blog, but they were uncolored.

Great!! I love your originals!! It's so great see the work on pencil...
very inspiring stuff!!

In what size you drew this comics?
Do you use the ruler ins some parts, like the houses in the Background?

Jim Smith said...

Hey Paul, they were drawn on standard size Marvel format - about 11x17 approx and some lines were ruled but mostly it was without straight edge.

Wonderful comics! I love how cartoony and appealing everything looks. I've come to expect that from your work Jim. Top-notch!
