John Watkiss

Cleaning out my harddrive I came across these wonderful artworks by John Watkiss and a.o. the stuff that he did for Tarzan. I'm sure , you've seen it before somewhere. He did one of those a day and then something. The man is a real genius, and that includes all the pros and cons, and he knows it. But funny enough I got along pretty well with him, and I visited him an a regular basis in his then Glendale-home. I thought I'd share this with you, so I'm not the only one today to feel talentless.


His son, Lawrence.

He repeatedly proposed to do a portrait of me and I could bite my own ass, that we never got around to make it happen.
There's more stuff on his own site, link above...

Yeah, these paintings are amazing--I like that they have something of a classic American illustration feeling to them. The one in red reminds me of Dean Cornwell.

What's John up to these days? Any idea?

He's still in the US and I think he has been doing some Previs work for LifeAction stuff, that's all I know...H

This man is a legend in the animation biz but having never met him, know very little about him. Great to see his more personal work too. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for posting these, I just happened to get my hands on a copie of the Tarzan-Artbook. I was amazed by his paintings and googled for more of his works. I'd like to know what he's up to currently and if there's any chance to get some sort of artbook of his works.
