Below is a Jim Smith drawing of John Wayne that I inked in Illustrator, The rough drawing was posted by The Amazing John K a few days ago. He offered it up to anyone that might be interested in practicing cleanup. It's been a few years since my cleanup days at Cartoon Network and I thought what the heck. I had so much fun inking Jims Drawing of John Wayne that I decided to cleanup and color one of my sketches (of Tom Hanks) from a previous post. Mine is... meh.. okay I guess. If I recall correctly I was inspired to draw the original sketch (of Tom Hanks) and all the other models from reading one of John K's blog posts a few months back.
