Jim, do you paint?

I writing an independent movie, and I want a really old style film noir style painted poster for the film. You seem to know about classic poster design more than anyone, and you can draw like a sonuvabitch, so I'd love to hire you to draw and paint it, and if you don't paint, I'll just have someone collaborate with to paint your drawings. Don't you know Frazetta?

It's really far away in the future, though, years away, but it'd be a dream come true.

Those three guys at the bottom and frightening! Awesome!

Jorge I mostly do marker and cg color. I was good at watercolor way back but prefer the markers with the computer as support. I met Frazetta in '87 when we were doing Mighty Mouse for Bakshi, but doubt he would remember me. E-mail me at jimsmithcartoons@yahoo.com

Thanks Kali, the three guys in yellow are actually good guys but everybody dies in the movie so no sympathy for them. It's kind of tongue-in-cheek.

Thanks Josh, who happens to be the brains of this movie. He's the one in yellow on the right with the cabbie hat. When are we going to see it, fella?
